Garden flowering trees
Flowering trees are grown for ornamental purposes as they create splashes of color in the gardens, as well as providing areas of shade.
These are trees with imposing stems or of medium height, characterized by the presence of flowers which in some cases are gathered in inflorescences, while in other cases they remain isolated.
Before making a choice, however, it is useful to take into consideration some logistical data that may affect their growth, namely:
- extension of the garden
- types of terrain
- weather conditions
- coexistence between species
It is a flowering tree between 20 and 25 meters high, which has a woody, erect stem covered with a dark and rough bark.
The foliage develops vertically with a cone shape.
The leaves are large, elliptical in shape, shiny, with an intense green color on the upper page and dark green on the lower one, with a leathery consistency.
The flowers are generally arranged in the apical portion of the branches, isolated or in pairs, with a very large corolla with distinct, soft and fleshy petals, white in color and very fragrant.
The fruits are similar in shape to the pine cones and contain bright red seeds.
It requires soft, well-drained, fertile soils due to the addition of organic matter and peat, with neutral or acidic component.
It must be exposed in full sun because it loves mild temperatures and fears the cold and frost.
We recommend to fertilize at least every 6 months, with nitrogen-rich fertilizers.
