Others have posted their flowering apricots, so here's mine, a prunus mume 'contorta.' I've had this tree for 6 years, and I feel it is just now coming into its own.

Enjoy.

I found some of these from an online retailer and it turned out they were grafted for landscape... :( I asked first so I did not buy them.

I've found they air layer very easily, and cuttings will also root, so you could alway buy a grafted one and use it as a stock plant.
