Mystery ID Prunus tree

FfoxgloveFfoxglove UkPosts: 516
Hello! I wondered and was hoping that somebody might be able to identify nagar type of Prunus tree this is planted in my parents’ garden. 
I’m worried it’s in the wrong spot and might get huge and I’d like to move it while small. It has green leaves when in lead. Serrated edge. Here is a pic of it in flower.

    I tried googling nagar prunus but all that came up was your post!
    It does look more shrubby than tree like  hard to tell from photo angle
    As to the wrong spot again cant tell from the photo but it could do with the grass cleared away from the stem a bit more.
  • I too was confused.nagar..according to www...

    "Indian (northern states): Hindu (Kayasth) name, from Sanskrit nagara 'urban' (from Sanskrit nagara 'city'). Jewish (Sephardic and Israeli): occupational name from Hebrew nagar 'carpenter'."

    There are many many different Prunus sp and named cultivars.
    Learning all about the different cherries is a skilled task that only a few have mastered.
    The growth of this one appears to be shrubby.
    I would suggest you leave it ...then if it gets too big cut it down.
    If has special meaning to your family them move it now incase it grows to big for its present position.

    Thanks for posting both, I meant to write Prunus okame!!!! Sorry it was a typo! 🙈 
    it’s right next to the paved driveway so I’m wondering if it gets big then the roots could mess up the driveways

    Thanks..that helps!
    Never a good idea to put cherry trees near a drive it could lift the tarmac/blocks at a later date.
    Yes it can get quite large.
    Have a look here...
