Prunus Mume 'Kobai' flowers from late December to early March producing deep pink semi-double blossoms and brightens the winter garden with its deep red-pink flowers. Prunus mume grows from 15 to 30 feet tall and often nearly as wide.  The Japanese apricot is native to moist, well-drained hillsides in Japan and China and is an important landscape plant.  It flowers best in full sun, but will tolerate slightly shaded spots.  In the 20th century, China designated the the Plum Blossom as its national flower with the 5 petals representing the 5 blessings (wealth, health, virtue, old age, and natural death).  The flowers are widely seen in Asian art in their paintings and ceramics.  The Japanese have several hundred cultivars, but are very rare in the US.  USDA zones 6-9
