What's Blooming? Flowering Bushes, Shrubs and Trees Welcome Spring
Gorgeous Flowering Cherries, Azaleas and more: Springtime is wonderfully vibrantly. Especially with our fresh favorites that are blooming now, despite any remaining chill in the air. Whether you're looking for Flowering Bushes, Trees or any other landscape staple, our top 4 picks will have you welcoming spring with elegance but without effort.
1. Okame Cherry Tree
Okame Cherry Trees are one of the first to bloom each spring, with rich and iconic blossoms you'll love. Large, pink blooms define this second-to-none tree with unbelievable vibrancy.
So, it's no wonder why these trees are celebrated for their striking color. In the early 1900s, Japan sent thousands of Flowering Cherries, including Okame Cherry Trees, to our nation's capitol as a gesture of friendship.
This gesture is celebrated today during the upcoming National Cherry Blossom Festival, when the streets of Washington, D.C. are filled with flowers for weeks!
2. White Azalea
Our Delaware Valley White Azalea displays magnificent clusters of flowers every season, making it one of the most popular flowering shrubs available. It's better than your classic azalea because it boasts unique and fragrant snow white blossoms that contrast perfectly with your other plantings.
Even better? These flowers remain picturesque and perfect for several weeks, so the Delaware Valley makes an extraordinary accent border around a deck or front porch because they don't falter and fade.
3. Endless Summer Hydrangea
Ok, so it takes a few more weeks to get the amazing blooms from the Endless Summer. But once it blooms, it truly shines - you get color from early summer to the first frost. And milder climates should see pretty consistent blooms until around Thanksgiving.
Many other hydrangeas only bloom early for a few weeks and then die back. The Endless Summer, though? It lives up to its name and produces unbelievable vibrancy...all without effort.
Especially since it's one of the only flowering shrubs that will still bloom if it's hit by a late spring frost.
4. Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea
Imagine nine months of thick, full blooms from season to season. With the Autumn Royalty, you get blooms and the benefit of easy, effortless growth, especially since it tolerates temperature extremes well.
And it grows in sun or shade, so it will thrive almost anywhere you plant it. It's a stunning azalea that looks great from New Jersey to Miami and beyond. Plus, the height of the Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea makes it one of the best flowering shrubs to plant as a low privacy hedge
But no matter what you plant - from flowering trees to flowering shrubs - you'll have spring-to-summer beauty that's hassle-free. Check out more of our flowering favorites here!
