How do you Select a Flowering Tree?
Flowering trees add color to the yard or landscape when they burst into bloom in the spring or summer. Some of the most popular flowering trees include redbuds, crape myrtles, magnolias, crabapples, smoke trees and dogwoods. Some flowering trees produce fruits and are a food source for birds. Others attract pollinators.
When choosing a flowering tree for your garden, consider your grow zone, soil type and how much sunlight the tree will receive. Also take into account the tree's mature height, growth habit, foliage color, fall foliage color, bloom color and bloom time.
