Crabtree, Red Flowering
(Malus x 'Prairiefire')
'Prairiefire' is the best red flowering crabtree for several reasons: long lasting, vibrant purplish red flowers that put other flowering trees on notice each spring (see above)...smaller, glossy dark red persistent fruits are less messy and more ornamental than most crabs...also features good resistance to all of the various leaf maladies that impact crabs locally during wet, cloudy weather...dark green leaves appear healthier than the muted purple leaves of other red flowering crabs...upright to rounded shape that matures to 20 ft. high and wide...we've found the growth of 'Prairiefire' to be slower than other crabtrees in Cambridge, expect around ten inches annually.
7 ft. tall: $68
Dogwood, Yellow Flowering
(Cornus mas 'Golden Glory')
This small and slow growing (6 inches annually) ornamental is the first tree locally to flower, arriving as early as mid-March in warm springs...yellow flowers (see top, above) look especially good in front of red brick and evergreens...also features mottled tan bark and little red edible but not that flavorful cherries (both pictured above)...the leaves are not bothered whatsoever by Japanese beetles...fall color is a subdued wine red...reaches 20 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide...this dogwood is featured prominently at Olbrich Botanical Gardens along the main trail heading east to Starkweather Creek.
Magnolia, Pink Flowering
(Magnolia x 'Galaxy')
'Galaxy' magnolia is one of the largest pink flowering magnolias known, topping out up to 25 ft. with an upright, narrow form to 15 ft. wide...leaves hold up well in late summer even during wet weather...flowers are pictured immediately above.
Magnolia, White Flowering
(Magnolia x stellata 'Royal Star')
Compact Mature Size: 'Royal Star' magnolia matures to only 15 ft. high by 12 ft. wide...features a reliable burst of white each spring: pink buds open to pleasantly fragrant, dense 3-4" white flowers in late April (see picture above)...clean dark green foliage looks great all summer...flowers when only several feet tall, so no waiting around!
5 ft. tall 'Royal Star' $88
(Cercis canadensis 'Minnesota Strain')
Our bestselling tree has one of the most vivid spring flower shows in town: a purple/pink spectacle that appears on all branches, not just the prior year’s growth as with most flowering trees…also boasts attractive slate grey and reddish mottled bark (see photo immediately above) and heart shaped leaves which emerge a reddish purple and turn a warm yellow in the fall…redbuds grow to about 20 ft. high at 12 inches annually locally...initial growth of younger trees is closer to 18 inches annually…we offer the most cold hardy cultivar available to assure hardiness in our area.
