Dwarf Trees for Landscaping

Although planting dogwood trees in your yard is a great way to liven up the landscape, this species can grow to towering heights of 50 feet, making them not ideal for smaller properties. However if you are looking to add the beauty and finesse that these trees bring try planting a dwarf dogwood in your yard. What is ideal about using these dwarf trees for landscaping is that they adapt easily to different environments, allowing them to thrive in both sunny and shaded conditions and making them easy to plant in almost any yard. Because dwarf dogwoods can sometimes be more expensive than a traditional variety, another way to keep these trees from reaching monstrous heights is by trimming and pruning the branches to keep them small. Though these species may not be considered the best small trees for small yards, a simple trim or prune with the right garden shears can prevent these plants from overgrowing and keep them looking their best throughout the seasons. Plus learning how to care for a dogwood tree is an easy task for any DIY homeowner.

Types of Ornamental Trees

Of course there are a myriad of popular types of trees for landscaping including the weeping willow, magnolias, birch, and evergreens which can all be used to create a natural privacy screen, decorative hedge fence, or even just for foundation planting to add decoration to your yard. The weeping willow tree is particularly great for providing shade, and privacy, to yards located in a more southern wetland environment, while evergreens are ideal for ornamentation in colder climates. However, one of the most popular ornamental trees for landscaping in both warm and cold regions is the flowering dog wood because it easily adapts to different environments. The many different dogwood tree varieties play a key role in this species popularity and versatility. For example, the cornus Cherokee Chief dogwood tree is known for its vibrant reddish, burgundy tinged flowers that bloom during the spring, while it boasts dense green leaves in the fall. Alternatively, the Cherokee Princess is a white flowering dogwood tree which provides more subtle contrasts to your yard and is perfect for overlooking landscaping plants for shaded areas.

Pink Japanese Trees

Other types of these trees with white flowers include the Kousa dogwood. This variety is one of the common Japanese dogwood trees that are known for its striking displays of showy white flowers that last throughout the summer months. Like other Japanese trees, this species produces luscious dark green leaves, accented with berries that give rise to beautiful clusters of four-pronged flowers when the weather begins to get warmer. One thing that allows kousa dogwood trees to stand apart from others is that the berries produced by this variety are edible, providing a delicious and succulent snack that can be enjoyed right from the branch or combined with wines and other food. Other spring blossoming trees that originate from this region of the world include the Japanese cherry tree and magnolia. Japanese magnolia trees also generate remarkable white blossoms during the spring, but unlike the dogwood, possess shiny green leaves.
