Early Blooming Trees and Plants

Flowering Pear trees bloom in early spring Pyrus Calleryana ‘Bradford’ or Bradford Pear. The Aristocrat pear is very similar. Both have gorgeous white blooms that last about 2-4 weeks.  The Tree will grow to about 40-50 ft. tall and wide.  Nice thick dark green foliage spring through summer seasons. The foliage will also turn a nice red/purple color in late fall.  It is a deciduous tree which means it will lose its leaves during the cold winter months.

Creeping Phlox

This early blooming plant provides dark pink blooms in early spring.  It likes full sun but may lose its flowers during the mid-summer hot sun in the Southwest. It can tolerate poor soil but will look better and last longer if planted with good loamy potting soil.  Most gardening stores will have the Creeping Phox Subulata and are the most common.
