Spring Blooming Trees for Sale Online
We all wait for it every year. That moment between winter and spring when early spring flowering trees burst into a carnival of color. That's when you know that a new season has truly begun.
There are many spring flowering trees to choose from–each of them excellent, and as you begin to plan your garden consider adding a spring-flowering tree or two. Think of the spring flowers as a reminder that spring always arrives and the garden always blooms. Don't think the show ends in spring, as many of these flowering trees have colorful berries in the summer and gorgeous fall colors.
Trees are often considered the backbone of the landscape. They bring structure, height, texture, and color to the garden. Since trees are very long-lived, it is important to choose a tree that will fit in the garden when it reaches its mature size. A small urban yard may only be able to accommodate a tree that reaches 15 to 20 feet.
Spring Flowering Trees for Smaller Landscapes
Fortunately, many easy to grow and attractive spring flowering trees remain fairly small and fit in landscapes with limited space.
Royal Star Magnolia is a small tree that is often grown as a multi-stemmed specimen. The large white flowers open in March and are the showiest feature of the tree. The Royal Star magnolia can grow between 10 to 20 feet tall, with a slightly narrower width.
Centennial Blush Magnolia is another type of Star Magnolia tree that produces the same star-shaped flowers as Royal Star but with a pink blush.
Magnolia Jane has gorgeous tulip-shaped flowers that arrive before the leaves and last for about a month or so in spring. The huge, fragrant blooms are pink to purple with a hint of red on the outside. Jane Magnolias bloom in spring and will occasionally put on a smaller second show in the summer. Jane can reach up to 12 to 15 feet tall and 8 to 10 feet wide.
The Standing Ovation Serviceberry produces white flowers with a columnar form. Very easy to fit into even the smallest of gardens.
