Flowering apricots are native to Asia and have been cultivated for centuries for their beauty and ornamental value.

The most common flowering apricot species is Prunus mume, also known as the Japanese flowering apricot. This deciduous shrub or small tree typically grows 5-7 m tall and wide. Its flowers emerge in late winter or early spring, before the leaves, and can be single or double. The fruit, which ripens in summer, is small, fuzzy, and sour to bitter.
