Bare Root Flowering Trees
When you see the blossoms on the flowering plum tree, you know spring has finally arrived! All the flowering trees on our list, with the exception of the Chitalpa, are spring bloomers.
The dwarf flowering Purple Pony is an excellent solution for small landscape areas. The tree is only ten to twelve feet tall. The pale, single pink blooms are followed by purplish foliage, adding interest from spring to fall.
Flowering plum trees are very low maintenance plants that need minimal pruning. They have few disease and insect problems except in the Pacific Northwest where leaf damage from insects and fungus can be a problem. They are not particular about soil, but cannot survive in boggy situations.
