I was walking around town with my kids the other day and this bush caught my eye. I just love it and want one of my own lol. Can someone help me out in identifying it please. It's located in north eastern North Dakota.
Well it looks like a double flowered blossom, so its probably a Prunus variety, but as to whether its a Japanese flowering cherry such as Prunus Kanzan, or Prunus triloba, flowering almond, is hard to say, need sight of the trunk, overall growth habit and close up of the leaves.
I would just offer a piece of advice though- there are myriads of Prunus flowering blossom trees, many with double flowers, and all vary enormously in size and growth habit, so your choice of blossom tree should be based on where you're going to plant it, so that you know it's not going to get too tall or wide for where it is, as much as what the blossom looks like. Regarding blossom, bear in mind its only there for a couple of weeks, in a windy year it'll be ripped off the tree quicker, and then you're looking at just the leaves for six months, so choice should also be related to overall appearance without the blossom present. And be prepared for the piles of browning blossom petals on the ground as the blooms fade!
