    I don't know what it is, but from the way it is breaking from the maim stem I think you have a brute there, I think it will be a huge thing in time.  

  • I think your right, I'll post another picture once the leaves are out,  thank you

    Star gaze lily is right, it's a Prunus. The glossy bark of one of the stems indicates it's Prunus serrula.  http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=1551 

    It'll grow very wide, if you let it. Should you want to prune it, don't  take out stems that are over 8 cm in diameter, as these will start to rot away quite easily. Prunus' should be pruned in late Summer to prevent Silver Leaf.

  • Thanks for the advice, can't wait to see it bloom
