These trees are sometimes called, Prunus mume, that name referring to the Latin, horticultural classification. The Peggy Clarke, cultivar flowers are bright pink, double flowers, 2 inches wide and emit an intense spicy, pleasantly fragrant, aromatic cloud.
Rosemary Clarke apricot double-flowers are pure white, and W.B. Clarke flowers are colored double-pink.
