Blossoming Beauty: Springtime Delights with Flowering Trees in Cincinnati

Updated: 4 days ago

Hello fellow tree enthusiasts! If you're in the Cincinnati area right now, you're in for a treat as the Tri-state Area's flowering trees are in full bloom, gracing the landscape with their stunning colors and fragrances. Today, let's take a closer look at some of the standout varieties you might encounter, including the Forest Pansy Red Bud, Magnolia, Cherry, Korean Lilac, and Ornamental Pear.

Forest Pansy Red Bud

Forest Pansy Red Bud: This charming tree is known for its unique heart-shaped leaves and profusion of delicate pink to purple blooms that cover its branches in early spring. Forest Pansy Red Bud is a compact and ornamental tree, making it ideal for smaller gardens or urban landscapes.


Magnolia: A classic favorite, Magnolia trees are famous for their large, showy flowers that appear before the leaves emerge. These flowers range in color from white to pink or purple, depending on the variety. Magnolias are prized for their elegance and fragrance, creating a striking focal point in any garden.

Cherry Tree

Cherry: Cherry trees burst into a cloud of pink or white blossoms in spring, creating a breathtaking sight. Their blooms are often associated with the arrival of spring festivals and are a favorite among pollinators.

Korean Lilac

Korean Lilac: This compact lilac variety offers clusters of fragrant, pale purple flowers that attract butterflies and bees. Korean Lilacs are perfect for smaller gardens or as border plants.

Ornamental Pear

Ornamental Pear: With its profusion of white blossoms in spring, the Ornamental Pear is a showstopper. The tree also boasts glossy green leaves that turn brilliant shades of red and orange in the fall.

For those considering tree trimming, the best times vary by tree type. Generally, it's advisable to prune flowering trees right after they finish blooming. However, corrective pruning can be performed throughout the year as needed. This approach helps maintain the tree's health and appearance.

At Gregory Forrest Lester, Inc., your Cincinnati tree service, we recommend considering micro and macro injections paired with soil treatments to enhance the health and beauty of your flowering trees next spring. These treatments can provide essential nutrients and pest protection to ensure robust blooms year after year.
