Flowering & Ornamental Trees
Flowering trees transform your garden with mature trees providing beauty and grandeur, while small flowering trees sparkle with life and promise. They lure us outdoors to walk a bit and enjoy the beauty of the season. The best flowering trees attract pollinators such as bees, and fruits feed birds and small creatures. At every season, they frame and shape the garden.
Ornamental trees brighten up any landscape with vivid colors in the spring and fall and sweeten the air with fragrant flowers. An ornamental tree can offer a focal point for your garden and add year-round beauty to a garden.
When choosing flowering and ornamental trees, think beyond spring to those that blossom in summer or early fall, so there is always something in bloom to enjoy. Consider also interesting leaf shapes, handsome woody structure, showy fall color, and bright berries.

Patuxent Nursery is proud to sell American Chestnut Trees as well. Once beautiful and abundant, the American chestnut tree covered huge tracts of land across the eastern United States for thousands of years until a fungus (blight) from Asia decimated virtually every tree standing on North American soil. After nearly 70 years of absence, the American chestnut is poised to make a comeback, thanks in part to the Dunstan Chestnut. The blight-resistant Dunstan Chestnut Tree is easy to grow and they thrive in a wide variety of areas.
