Is it possible to buy a minature/dwarf prunus royal burgundy flowering cherry tree



No, unless you can find someone producing a standard version. There are other, smaller varieties of flowering cherry available, but not that variety.

You could have a go yourself by obtaining a small young cherry tree of the name you describe and limiting its growth. Start off with a trainer pot for 2-3 years. Transfere on to a wider shallow pot after that. Transfere the tree into this and arrange the roots after a bit of pruning. Use Bonzai gritted soil. You may have to stabilise it with wire to start off. The items to do this are usually obtainable from the larger GCs. Its fun to see if you can manage to keep it going to flowering size. To buy an already tended one is expensive. Do neither if away from home for extended periods.
