Prunus persica 'Lilian Burrows',Peach Blossom Tree

Prunus persica 'Lillian Burrows' ,
Ornamental Flowering Peach
This is a favourite Spring flowering tree. It grows to about 4 metres and the branches make good cut flowers if you want to try your hand at an Ikebana arrangement.
The only down side of these trees is that you have to deal with the masses of rotten fruit which litter the ground under the tree during summer and they are always full of fruit fly larvae.
2017 update: Sadly I no longer have this tree
