5 Flowering Trees to Beautify Your Lawn

A flowering tree can really transform a landscape. Not only do they increase the curb appeal of your property, but they also support the local pollinators and ecology.

We've put together a list of some of our favourite flowering trees.


Anyone looking for a compact, feature tree will find a winner in the Toba Hawthorn. As it grows, the trunk twists to create a gorgeous focal point in the landscape. 

Special Features: 

  • Soft coloured white-pink flowers
  • Small, long lasting red fruit
  • Hardier than most Hawthorns


We had a lilac tree in our backyard growing up and it’s one of the most vivid memories I have of our yard. The arrival of the fragrant clusters of flowers always signified the end of a school year and the beginning of summer. The Ivory Silk variety puts a spin on the classic lilac tree with its creamy white flowers.

Special Features: 

  • Lots of fragrant flowers!
  • Drought resistant
  • Small, compact, great for small spaces.



    If your clients want a flowering tree then this is it. This compact variety has so much going for it in terms of colour: deep purple leaves year round, orange-yellow fall color, pink flowers … Anyone who wants something bright and exciting in their yard will love the Thunderchild Crabapple.

    Special Features:

    • Extremely colourful
    • Flowers
    • Small red fruit
    • Compact – a good feature tree
    • Extremely reliable


      It’s nice to have an option for clients that is more contained. The Autumn Brilliance Shrub is a perfect way to add a consistent pop of colour whether framing a feature tree or lining a yard or driveway.

      Special Features: 

      • The most beautiful, white, star-like flowers (very fragrant too!)
      • Edible dark purple berries
      • Bright red fall colour
      • Great for landscape design


        A unique tree that really stands out in a landscape thanks to it's beautiful flowers and gorgeous fall colour.

        Special Features:

        • Bright red autumn colour
        • Creamy white flowers
        • Comes in black #15 Gallon pot

          April & May are the perfect time to plant these beautiful trees since the majority of them will begin to flower. We hope this helps and happy planting!
