Flower:Indian Plum
Genus / Species:Oemleria cerasiformis
Notes:This is one of the first blossoms you will see in the Willamette Valley, blooming even before spring in February. Another common name is Osoberry, and another scientific name is Osmaronia cerasiformis(don't tell me using scientific names keeps one from confusion).
