Flowering trees are among the most eye-catching plants in season. Defined as flowering trees less than 40 feet tall, these plants make spectacular statements, accents, and specimen trees in any landscape. This course will focus on identification, culture, and landscape uses of favorites such as dogwoods, cherries, and magnolias, in addition to some beautiful, lesser known species.
