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.
- 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.
- 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.

- Small red fruit
- Compact – a good feature tree
