What is your favorite flowering tree?
Do you have a favorite tree that has blossoms during Spring? Thank you for answering.
Today it is the Desert Willow. It is a native California tree with fragrant pink blossoms attracting many birds, although home to flurries of hummingbirds all summer long. More summer blooms beginning with May, yet with this summer in California more all year there are early blooms.
Not very tall usually from nine to as tall as thirty. Nice for a front or back yard growing deciduous over winter months. Seen in deserts and interior chaparral lands usually near waterways like the Colorado River and streams.
If you like Anna hummingbirds in Southern California these are a must and a treat
I love the lilacs in the spring. Every year my tree in the front blooms for such a short time, it is beautiful and a rich deep purple. Oh spring, Out like a lion, no kidding!
Wow tsmog, yes, the Desert Willow sounds breathtakingly beautiful from your description. I live in southeastern USA, so not sure if I have seen this amazing tree you write of here. I love hummingbirds and the butterfly bushes here attract them.
Shelly, lilacs offer immense beauty and variety are many here in SoCal. At Las Pilitas Nursery website there are pages of them. Faith Reaper I have not any at home. I do have sage and fuschia attracting those flying angels
Oh, tsmog, we have those beauties too, lilacs! I love that, those flying angels. I can tell you are an amazing writer just from your wonderful comments!
I love it when all of the flowering trees blossom but my favorite is probably a tie between plum and cherry trees. They are just so beautiful in full bloom, they instantly brighten my mood and make me pause and smile. It's like seeing a warm hello from mother nature
My favorite is the Dogwood Tree, because of the spiritual meaning and its legend.
There is a legend, that at the time of the Crucifixion the dogwood had been the size of the oak and other forest trees. So firm and strong was the tree that it was chosen as the timber for the cross. To be used thus for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed the tree, and Jesus, nailed upone it, sensed this and in His gentle pity for all sorrow and suffering said to it:
"Because of your regret and pity for My suffering, never again shall the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used as a cross. Henceforth it shall be slinder and bent and twisted and its blossoms shall be in the form of a cross....two long and two shorter petals. And in the center of the outer edge of each petal there will be nail prints, brown with rust and stained with red. and in the center of the flower will be a crown of thorns, and all who see it will remember....
Hi Dear Shyron, Oh, my goodness, Dogwood trees bring back such lovely memories of my childhood as my backyard was just full of them. Love your beautiful tribute and meaning shared here! One Easter, as a child, I experienced a miracle of the trees!
I hope you will share your miracle of the tree(s).
I am glad you came back and commented again, as they only give us so much room to reply. When I first joined HP, I wrote on it, as it was such a special time with the Lord, but over time, it started to go down as they do, and so I unpublished it.
I really like the redbud tree in spring because its color is so bold, but there isn't one I don't like after winter's brown season!
Pear trees are my all time favorite, perhaps because my grandmother raised pears on her farm. The blooms are not just lovely, but smell so heavenly!
Hi bethperry, yes, they certainly are lovely and fragrant, but your added reason of your grandmother raising pears on her farm, I am sure adds to them being your favorite.
I will never forget the first time I stood beneath the magnolia blossomed tree of the south ! Wow , now I know where love was born ! My favorite though ...the lilac ,my mothers favorite too !
I have two favourites, cherry and blackthorn. Cherry trees may be wild or planted to enhance a street or boulevard but their early blossoming, in rich pink, is beautiful to behold in spring. They foam against a blue sky and strong sun but are equally beguiling when late snows fall.
Blackthorn I think are truly wondrous, their smoky white blossoms seem ethereal and unreal on a dark gloomy late winter's day, contrasting heavily with the almost black branches of this thorny wild cousin of the hawthorn.
The flowering Magnolia tree. The flowers are short lived, but beautiful. And the smell is amazing.

I've had yet another eBay capsule snipped from a piece I published two days ago. This article is on dogwood trees, and the eBay product was about dogwood trees/seeds and planting of this tree species -- which is something directly related to the hub itself. So, now I think it is...
