Unlike most early bloomers in Spring, the cherry plum flowers are found on trees rather than low-lying plants.
The tree itself can grow up to 15m tall, but the flowers only reach 2cm across. They have five stark white petals and long deep yellow stamen, which appear early-mid February.
These flowers are easily confused with blackthorn flowers, which are more of a cream colour and often bloom later than the cherry plum.
