Popular Spring Blooming Trees St. Louis, Missouri

The Old Favorite: Bradford Pear Tree In the 1950-1960’s Bradford Pears were excessively planted along subdivision streets and in homeowner yards for the dynamic flower display in midMarch, the beautiful leaf color transition in summer to fall and its resistance to disease. However, the Bradford Pear is now only famous for breaking and falling in storms and high wind due to the branches stemming out of the same area in the trunk.

Spring Blooming Trees Eastern Redbud The jaw-dropping Eastern Redbud tree blooms in late March to early May and is best known for its rose-purple color petals. They bloom along the limbs of the trees with 2-8 flowers per cluster. Did you know that the flowers can be fried and eaten? Native Americans once used the bark and roots to treat whooping cough, dysentery, fevers, congestion, and vomiting.

Spring Blooming Trees Flowering Dogwood Flowering Dogwood trees bloom shades of vibrant white to reddish pink in early spring between April and May, just shortly after the Eastern Redud begins blooming. The true Dogwood flowers are actually the tiny yellowish green clusters inside of the four, showy petal-like bracts. This gives the appearance of a much larger flower and creates a fabulous display. Did you know that the Flowering Dogwood is the state tree of Missouri and Virginia?

Spring Blooming Trees Flowering Cherries There are hundreds of different varieties of Cherry trees including the Yoshino Cherry which touts slightly pink, almost white, 5-petaled blossoms and fresh leaves that emerge after the peak flowering season. The Weeping Cherry trees have sweeping and drooping branches with fragrant, rosy flowers. The Kwanzan Cherry is the most common tree and one blossom can consist of as many as 30-50 frilly pink petals that bloom throughout April.
