Q.Can you help with identifying this (young) deciduous tree, please?
We’re in Sechelt, BC, Canada. Just outside Vancouver, on the Sunshine Coast. Zone 7-8…wet Winters, dry Summers, not especially hot Summer temperatures.
This tree was in a nursery pot and outgrew it fairly quickly, rooting into the gravel beneath it.
It has a deep reddy-brown smoothbark, bronze leaves, and small 5 petaled white flowers with yellow stamens. It’s in flower right now…3rd week in March.
Leaves are opening (last couple of days),so are more or less coinciding with flower period.
I’d estimate the tree to be about 6-8 years old, certainly not less than that.
Thank you for the images and the description, but we have not been able to identify. A close up of the flowers, bark and leaves may help. We are unable to zoom in close enough.
