Here in Texas, we are blessed with decent weather for most of the year. There is hardly a time that you can’t go outdoors and enjoy the plants and greenery around you. But when it comes to trees, each of them has a season where they are at their best.
Flowering trees can make your yard be the talk of the town. Here are three flowering trees to consider adding to your landscape this spring.
The Desert Willow
This is also considered to be called the Flowering Willow. This tree is small but mighty. It stands at 15-40 feet tall with smaller, skinnier branches. However, the foliage on this tree can span far and wide, creating the illusion of a bigger tree. The flowers on this tree are white mixed with a magenta color and display a yellow middle.
The Magnolia Tree
Beautiful magnolias are these light pink and purple colors that are calming to the eye. Fun fact: There are about 200 different trees considered to be magnolia trees. The Magnolia Tree grows to be anywhere from 15 feet to 80 feet tall, so this could be a good option to put in your backyard where you are looking for some shade or privacy.
The Purple-Leaf Plum Tree
A full maturity, the Purple-Leaf Plum Tree stands at 25 feet tall and 25 feet wide. Its plum-colored leaves and square shape would make it a great fenceline tree to create privacy and still contribute to making your yard beautiful. People who get this tree are usually in the market for a low-maintenance tree that will be pretty self-sufficient once it is at full maturity.
The Flowering Dogwood Tree
This Flowering Dogwood tree is perfect for those who don’t have a lot of space or just don’t want to take up a lot of space. This particular plant usually grows to stay under 40 feet. Unfortunately, these white and pink beautiful flowers are only in their prime blooming time for three to four weeks out of the year. However, if you enjoy something near perfect for a short period of time, we think the Flowering Dogwood Tree is worth it.
