What type of flowering cherry would grow well in Oceanside, California?

Answer from NGA

My first choice would be Prunus campanulata, The Taiwan Flowering Cherry. These trees get 20 feet tall and wide, making them perfect for most landscapes, and they will flower consistently even near the coast. The flowers are a deep pink.

Another suggestion is Prunus ilicifolia, the Holly Leafed Cherry. This is a great small tree for a dry garden. It gets to 15-20 feet tall and wide. It blooms heavily in the mid spring with clouds of creamy white flowers.

Best wishes with your new cherry tree!
