From the little bit of twig showing in the upper photo, this appears to
be some form of flowering stone fruit (e.g., cherry, peach). Some
flowering stone fruits do set edible fruit, but many are merely
ornamental and fruitless.
Need a close up picture of the complete tree that depicts its growing
habit... too many trees have similar blossoms.
Can't really say from your Wiki picture, it's not very clear, too far
away... would be easier to ID from its leaves than its blossoms.
I have a crabapple that looks a lot like that, actually I have two of
them: Cardinal Crabapple Malus 'Cardinal'.. but probably not the
same. Mine have very deep purple leaves and it's easy to tell apple
tree leaves from plum tree leaves... I have plum trees too.
Would be even easier to narrow down an ID when it fruits.
My g'mother called hers Japanese flowering cherry. Sorry, I never
bothered to look up the species. I remember the ground under the tree
being covered by this solid pink blanket after the petals fell - one
that as a kid I'd wallow in. -Not quite as comfy as diving into a big
pile of raked autumn leaves, but definitely more luxuriant.
At least, I *think* it's the same tree.
