One of the best ways to start the process of landscaping your backyard is to plant flowering trees that do well in the Charlotte area. Even though there are dozens of trees to choose from, there are a select few that are easily planted and don’t require a lot of effort to maintain. 

Below are a few varieties of flowering trees that grow well in Charlotte, NC:

Yoshino Cherry

Want something magnificent and eye catching in your backyard? Plant a Yoshino cherry tree that blooms like a frothy cloud in early spring. This large tree will transform the entire landscape with its beautiful white flowers. Also, because they emerge before the leaves, the flowering effect can be compared to a white blooming umbrella.

Kousa Dogwood

The Kousa dogwood is a small deciduous tree with white flowers.  Some say the blooming patter resembles that of a brilliant starry night. In the fall, the leaves change to a stunning reddish purple color. It can be planted as a specimen or in small groupings on residential property around homes, near patios or in lawns. Also effective in shrub borders, woodland gardens, bird gardens or natural areas.

Forest Pansy Redbud

If you are looking for a tree that stands out in the overwhelmingly green landscape, the forest Pansy Redbud is just the thing for you. The new foliage emerges a scarlet purple color and matures to a softer purple. It is just what you need to add an exotic element to your backyard.
