My friend gave me this tree about 5 months ago. Yesterday, it had 2 flowers. Flower has double layers with smell like incense. My friend told me it was flowering plum tree. In few days, it will have full bloom which is very good for Vietnamese New Year on 2/3/2011 :)

Thanks Mcpesq817 and Milehigh_7. I really like its flowers since it looks like Early Flowering apricot's flowers but much smaller!
