Top Trees To Add Pink Flowers in Your Yard
Flowering trees are one of the best signs that the spring season is here. Fortunately for us, our climate allows us to plant a wide range of flowering trees from all over the United States and the world that produce purple, white, yellow, red, and pink flowers not just in the spring, sometimes even into the summer!
As part of an ongoing series, our nursery professionals will be identifying the best flowering trees for a specific color. Be sure to check out our other blog posts on the best.....
The Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia) is our favorite and it is the #1 selling flowering tree at Moon Valley Nurseries due to its ability to offer something for every season. The spring season is when this tree really shines with its large clusters of flowers (think football size) that cover this entire tree. The blooms are long and can last until late summer. At Moon Valley Nurseries, we offer this tree as a single-trunk or multi-trunk. In addition, the Crape Myrtle trees grown at Moon Valley Nurseries are superior thanks to mildew resistance, which you will not find anywhere else.
These trees just love the hot summer months, which makes them an ideal flowering tree for your landscape. The Oleander, Nerium oleander) displays a long lasting bloom that comes in clumps of red, white, and pink. The blooms are vibrant may extend into the wilder winter months. Ideally planted in groups or rows, the Oleander is a great tree for our customers who are seeking privacy hedges, area screens, and property border because of the trees ability to keep a thick coat of dark green leaves throughout the year. We offer tree and shrubs versions of the Oleander at Moon Valley Nurseries.
