Prunus cerasifera 'Thundercloud'
One of the first trees we planted in our back yard, this was a good choice. The pink flowers, appearing right around mid-April every year, are very welcome early in the season, and the purple foliage keeps the interest up through the rest of the year. They have a reputation for attracting Japanese beetles, but in our garden these pests actually prefer (many) other ornamentals.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
