japanese flowering cherries
I have a small area where I would like to plant a small flowering tree. I am considering a flowering cherry. However, I have heard flowering cherries don't live very long. If this is true, what would be a good small flowering tree?
thanks for any help,
Small flowering trees that come to mind:
Redbud - berries for birds and nectar for butterflies and bees
Dogwood - ditto as above
Serviceberry - ditto as above
Plum - ditto as above - specifically:
P. americana (wild plum)
P. angustifolia (chickasaw plum)
P. munsoniana (wild goose plum)
Star magnolia - good for bees and butterflies
Fringe tree - if you have a male and female, you'll have berries for birds. The male has larger more and flowers.
Golden rain tree
Golden Chain tree
Crabapple - get one with small crabapples for birds.
