Flowering Trees That Add Curb Appeal

Flowering Trees That Add Curb Appeal

When thinking about all the varieties of flowering trees, there are three that stand out. Those three are Empress trees, Dogwood trees, and Crepe Myrtle trees.

The Empress Tree

The Empress flowering tree has been said to be one of the most beautiful of all the varieties of flowering trees. Most people would have no idea just how beautiful these trees can be if not for a neighbor or relative planting one for all to see. Empress trees grow extremely fast and can even be seen growing from day today.

They are great for blocking out the sun in the summer months and can make it through some of the harshest winters, only to re-bloom again the following summer. Even small Empress trees planted late in the growing season can reach 6 to 8 feet before the cold weather and shorter days set in.

Another great feature of the Empress tree is that they are nearly impossible to destroy. As an adult, or early in their growth, they can be cut down to ground level, and by the following spring, they will be sprouting as if nothing happened. The growth can be upward to double in the same amount of time as the season before.

Some Empress tree owners have described it as being much like Jack and the Bean Stalk when watching the tree shoot for the stars, or rather the sun as it is. It is still a fantastic tree to look at in the winter, sprouting tiny buds instead of the glistening purple and white flowers. When the season's turn and the flowers drop

For fall, it is a much more comfortable clean-up than the oaks and many other types of standard trees that make yards look like a plain out mess that needs hours of clean-up over and over again. The Empress tree's benefits include shading, fragrance, easy maintenance, and the ability to outlive the coldest weather and harshest treatment. It is genuinely royalty when it comes to the flower trees.

The Dogwood Tree

Dogwood trees are just as beautiful as the Empress and even produce a similar type of flower, except being purple. The flower is commonly pink. When combining hobbies, such as landscaping and bird watching, the dogwood tree can be an excellent choice. The dogwood tree has long been a tree that attracts

Multiple types of birds and makes the view out of your back window genuinely magnificent. It doesn't grow quite as quickly as the Empress above but grows fast nonetheless compared to its counterparts, such as oak or pine.

The berries produced by a dogwood tree are quickly snapped up by various birds, making it ideal for those who love to sit and watch the various types of birds come and go. It is also a quick clean-up tree when the fall comes and causes the flowers to tumble to the earth. 

Crepe Myrtle Tree

The final type of flowering tree is the  crepe myrtle. The most prominent benefit of the crepe myrtle tree is the variety of colors that it can come in, from deep purple to bright red. No matter your favorite type or color, you can find it in the color mood you love. Another benefit that this kind of flowering tree has over the other two mentioned is that it is one of the most affordable forms of a flowering tree on the market.

f treated properly, you can even have beautiful first-year blooms rather than waiting for the following year. Within three years, the tree can grow upward to 20 feet but can also be quicker, reaching its maximum growth of 25 to 30 feet, depending on the length of the growing seasons.
