Flowering Trees

If you’re looking for a way to bring some life and colour into your garden this spring, you may want to consider planting some trees that will flower. There’s no better way to enhance the look of your garden than with some beautiful, flowering trees. They will bloom in the early spring and quickly bring lovely birds and butterflies helping you to welcome the upcoming summer.

If cared for correctly, these trees can be a long-lasting investment,  bringing you garden beauty for many years to come. Here are a few of our favourite flowering trees…

1. Saucer Magnolia

These trees have multiple, winding trunks and saucer-like layers of floral blooms. Growing around 20 to 25 feet, these floral garden additions bring bright bundles of light pink and purple once they’ve bloomed each spring. This is often used as a garden focal point and is sure to enhance the ambience all year round.

2. Amelanchier Arborea – Robin Hill Juneberry

This lovely tree often blossoms in early spring, ready for bringing subtle life to your garden throughout the summer. It reaches an average of 10 meters at fully maturity and has a great oval shape.

3. Malus Evereste – Crab Apple

This is a great addition to any garden as it only reaches a height of 7 meters. When blooming it transforms from light pink buds to lovely white flowers. It’s subtle for most gardens and thrives from early spring until autumn.

Tips for tree care

It’s important that when choosing your tree from the nursery, you properly inspect it and check for any unwanted insects or signs of early decay. It is also important that throughout your tree’s life span, you are continually looking at the health of its leaves, bark, branches and trunk. If there are any issues happening within your tree, they will most likely show up here.

If you are unsure of whether or not your trees are showing signs of decay or ill health, you may want to consider calling in a seasoned arborist. At Butlers, we specialise in tree care and would be more than happy to give your trees an inspection. Why not give us a call today?
