This paper discusses the forms and characteristics of the branches and buds of Japanese apricot (Prunus mume Sieb. et Zucc.). The branches of Japanese apricot can be divided into vegetative and flowering. The vegetative branches can be further divided into developmental spindling and tapered. The flowering branches can be divided into long, middle, short and very short. The buds can be divided into leaf and flowering. The arrangement of these buds on the branch had more than ten forms. There is only terminally axillary bud, pseudo-terminal bud, at the top of the branch, no really terminal bud. The ability to sprout is strong. But a few leaf buds can grow up the long branches, especially one or two buds near the apex. The others grow up the shorter and very short branches from upper to lower parts.
