  1. Any fragrance? (There aren't a lot of flowering trees in my immediate neighborhood, so I always forget which ones smell good, which are scentless, and which smell funky.)

    1. This cherry plum (Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter Vesuvius') is very popular in our area. The flowers are beautiful as are the leaves (a dark purple). The fruit is messy but it is edible (tastes like sour cherries) and makes fantastic pies.

      The flowers don't have much of a scent, just a faint powdery smell if that makes sense. They're certainly not funky-smelling like some flowering trees.
