​The Beauty of Flowering Trees

Posted by Tammy Sons on

Few things in a landscape make passersby stop and take notice more than a grove of flowering trees. There’s a flowering tree for just about every hardiness zone in the country, so no front or back yard needs to be without a tree that brings forth stunningly beautiful flowers in the spring and summer. Here are a few of them:

Dogwoods

The flowers on dogwood trees aren’t flowers at all, but bracts that surround the real flowers. Nevertheless, both white flowering dogwood trees and pink dogwood trees are prized for their early and elegant burst of color in the spring. Besides their flowers, dogwoods are also grown for their colorful bark or the berries that come in fall. The dogwood is a small tree that grows between five and 30 feet tall in hardiness zones 2 through 8. Both white flowering dogwood trees and pink dogwood trees like full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained, acidic soil.

Crepe Myrtles

A favorite of the southeastern states, crepe myrtles have beautiful panicles of flowers that range from white to cream to hot pink to lavender and purple. The tree grows from 15 to 25 feet high and likes hot, sunny locations. Besides the beautiful flowers, crepe myrtles also have interesting, mottled bark and leaves that turn red in the fall. The tree likes well drained soil in hardiness zones 7 to 9.

Empress Trees

Empress trees or paulownia are fast growing trees with spectacular flowers that appear before the leaves. Like dogwoods, empress trees flower in early spring. The flower is a gorgeous purple and resembles the foxglove, which gives the tree is alternate name of foxglove tree. The tree is easy to take care of and isn’t too particular about the type of soil. The tree grows between 30 and 80 feet tall in zones 4 to 10.
