Flowering shade trees are really in a category all of their own. They can sometimes grow to be quite large and offer substantial shade. Yet they bloom, with delicate bright flowers! Plant a flowering shade tree and your home will surely be the showcase of the neighborhood!
Here are our top 5 picks →
1. Tulip Trees
One of the tallest native trees of Eastern North America, Tulip Tree features uniquely shaped leaves and large yellow tulip-shaped flowers.
2. Linden Trees
Linden Trees are a magnificent shade tree option. They have a formal, pyramidal shape and will bloom in early summer when many flowering trees have long finished their bloom cycle. Linden flowers are fragrant with dainty yellow petals. A true delight!
These native trees are as hardy and tough as they come! Don't be fooled by their somewhat rugged appeal, in late spring to early summer they will show off with large panicles of beautiful white flowers! Definitely, a sight to see!
Purple Robe Locust has bluish-green foliage which emerges burgundy in spring. The oval leaves turn yellow in fall. It has chains of fragrant rose pea-like flowers with yellow eyes hanging below the branches in late spring. This tree is definitely a head turner worth paying attention to!
Ornamental Pears are extremely versatile. Perfect for the parkway, and are a great option for the front or back landscape of the home. They provide shade and will work well as an accent tree. These beauties will get stunning clusters of white flowers and are the first of the season to emerge! Check out the video below to learn more!
