Positive coriaceous On Mar 15, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

One of the most beautiful of ornamental cherries. It isn't a weeping cherry, but it does produce flurries of pale pink flowers in autumn and during warm spells in winter, before producing a blizzard of blossoms in the spring.

This species is one of the longest lived of cherries, and one of the most tolerant of heat, cold, and stress. Fast growing.
