Plant ID help

Any idea what kind of tree tree this is? It blooms in the spring (April) and has purple foliage. In DC area (zone 7a).

Is it some sort of cherry blossom tree? New homeowner, so trying to figure out what's in the yard ha.

Thanks!
Jen

Re: Plant ID help

With purple foliage, I'm thinking some kind of a plum.

Re: Plant ID help

You're right -- it does appear to look like a plum variety.

Maybe Thundercloud Purple Leaf Plum? https://selectree.calpoly.edu/treedetail.lasso?rid=1161

I don't recall seeing any fruit, but we did move in towards the end of summer last year.

Re: Plant ID help

It looks like the blooms I had on my Nectarine tree. After the blooms fall off it should develop fruit.
