    Our flowering quince bc they are our first sign that it’s time for the season change. Next are Korean spice viburnums bc they bloom next and smell amazing, enchanting when you can open the windows and go to bed or wake up to the scent. Finally, mock orange bc they fill the yard with a great smell in late spring.

    My favorite flowering trees which I used in my garden in the past spring season to increase vibrancy and fragrance are mentioned below:

    Cherry Blossom: Cherry blossom trees are known for their delicate pink or white flowers in early spring. They are often associated with Japanese culture.

    Magnolia: Magnolia trees offer large, fragrant flowers in shades of white, pink, or purple. Their timeless beauty provides elegance to outdoor spaces.

    Crabapple: They are low-maintenance plants and provide ornamental value not only through their flowers but also through their colorful fruit.

    Redbud: Redbud trees are known for their striking display of pink or purple flowers. They belong to North America.

    Dogwood: Dogwood trees are cherished for their elegant flowers, appearing in shades of pink, white, or red.

    These are just a few examples of spring-flowering trees that are widely beloved for their beauty.

    American Yellowwood - Cladrastis kentukea, it has the most fragrant and elegant wisteria like white blooms. For us in the midwest the bloom can be sporadic, depending upon the timing of a late spring freeze. When they do bloom, it is a glorious sight. One of my favorite trees to introduce to my clients as it is relatively unknown to most.
