Flowering Tree Benefits in Landscaping
There are as many benefits to adding flowering trees to your landscaping as there are types of flowering trees. Flowering trees help ground and establish a garden, they add color to the landscape, they attract birds, bees, and other beneficial insects, and they can help with drainage and erosion issues.
The type of flowering tree that you add to your garden can have a huge difference in what the landscaping in your garden looks like. Consider these planting guidelines before choosing a flowering tree for your garden.
Flowering Tree Description
Flowering trees come in all shapes and sizes and can produce blooms of all colors from whites to pinks to yellows to purples. These beautiful trees tend to produce a flush of blooms early in the season before just being covered with a light to deep green leaves.
Hardy Planting Zone of Flowering Trees
Flowering trees are commonly found growing in hardy zones five to 8, but some can tolerate areas outside of those zones as long as certain growing needs are met.
Flowering Trees Bloom Season
Most flowering trees begin blooming early in the spring, between March and June depending on which hardy zone they are found in.
Flowering trees will create blooms in just about every color. You can choose a flowering tree that produces blooms that are white, yellow, pink, red, purple, and even green.
Flowering Tree Height
Flowering trees can grow as tall as six to twenty feet high depending on the variety you plant.
Soil Type Preferred By Flowering Trees
Flowering trees prefer well-draining, moist soil that they can establish their roots in. They are a great addition to landscaped gardens where there is an issue with erosion or soil displacement.
Sun or Shade Preferences
Flowering trees prefer full to partial sun to produce the flowering blooms that cover their limbs.
