Braving the end of winter the delicate, semi-double white flowers of Prunus mume ‘Omoi-no-mama’ (Japanese Apricot) are opening. This small deciduous tree will grow in moist but well-drained, moderately fertile soil preferably in full sun or partial shade. Notice how the newest growth with the flower buds has green bark.
