Does anyone know the name of this tree?
I got it all wrong and now someone has asked me what it is called

Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

I am afraid I can't help you but I will be watching with interest as this is the tree which lines the street in Rome where a friend lives. Fingers crossed somebody can help out.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

It looks like the purple leaf plum, Prunus cerasifera 'Nigra'
It was used a lot as a street tree in Melbourne too
cheers
