Description
 
Prunus mume 'Peggy Clarke' (Mei Hua) is double flowered with clear pink flowers held by a deep pink calyx.  Introduced in the early 1940's by W.B. Clarke.  In the 20th century, China designated 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
