Flowering trees are a beautiful addition to any yard. They bring a touch of color and beauty that you can look forward to every spring and summer.

Kentucky’s Native Flowering Trees

1. Serviceberry (Amelanchier)

This native tree is gorgeous year-round, as it produces beautiful white blooms in the spring and orange-red berries in the autumn. Birds love to eat those berries, so it will attract some fun wildlife to your yard. This option requires minimal tree maintenance and can get up to 20 feet tall.

2. Fringe Tree (Chionanthus virginicus)

The fringe tree, also known as the white fringe tree, produces lovely white flowers every spring. These flowers are fragrant and attract a variety of birds, moths, butterflies, and bees. The tree grows up to 20 feet tall and grows best in full sun or partially shaded soil. It grows slowly, so tree pruning doesn’t need to be done every year.  

3. Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis)

If you want blooms that aren’t white, the eastern redbud is an excellent choice. This tree grows bright pink flowers along its twigs, branches, and even on the trunk. They bloom for a few weeks in the spring, after which the red heart-shaped leaves turn green for the summer and fade to a stunning yellow in the autumn. They grow 20 to 30 feet tall. Other than regular watering and an annual pruning, there shouldn’t be much tree maintenance involved.
