Taiwanese Formosan Cherry

Prunus campanulata is a species of cherry native to Taiwan, widely grown as an ornamental tree, and a symbol of Nago, Okinawa in the Ryukyu Islands of Japan. It is variously known in English as the Taiwan cherry,[3] Formosan cherry, or bellflower cherry.

  The Campanulata cherry  blooms ahead of the Sakura, then very quickly the flowers drop and fade away.
