Which Prunus orientalis is this consistent with? The combination has been published three times.

The information under "About" page belongs to Prunus microcarpa. The photos here belongs to "silver almond", while Punus microcarpa is "small-fruited cherry". Therefore the information under "About" needs to be removed.

What needs to be done:
1) According to the world flora online, Prunus orientalis has become a synonym of Prunus argentea (http://www.plantsoftheworldonline.org/taxon/urn:lsid:ipni.org:names:730062-1). Currently, the valid Latin name of "silver almond" is Prunus argentea. Therefore, the photos here needs to be moved under Prunus argentea (I changed the IDs to P. argentea).

2) The information about "silver almond" under P. argentea can be obtained from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prunus_argentea
