This small shrub used to be commonly sold as one of the cheapest woody plants at many conventional nurseries in the Chicago area from the 1960's to the 1990's. This Dwarf Flowering Almond is a straggly woody plant that only has its flowers as the nice feature, which are single or double and white to pink. It would only live about maybe ten years and die out. Some cheap mail order nurseries may still sell it. It is native to central and northern China.
