Springtime is right around the corner, and what better way to chase the winter blues away than by adding some incredible flowering trees around your home and community this year. At Ben & Annie’s Trees for Tomorrow, alongside our efforts to replant any trees that have been disrupted during the home building process—our team is working toward creating a beautiful and welcoming environment throughout our neighborhoods in Central Texas, and we know just how to accomplish that this spring.

By planting some of our favorite flowering trees around our communities, we’re able to help the environment while at the same time, bring an added sense of beauty to our neighborhoods. Read on to see which trees you can add around your home to welcome in the warmer weather.  


You’ll easily be able to tell that spring has arrived when you see a Texas Redbud tree blossom in your neighborhood—with the vibrant pink and purple hue of the flowers bringing about a sense of wonder to the area, this is the perfect tree to add to your home landscaping. As an ideal tree to survive the warm, Central Texas temperatures, and with a mature height of 15 to 20 feet, the Texas Redbud will be easily manageable for even the busiest of individuals. 

Crepe Myrtle

With a variety of colors to display, and a lifespan ranging from 50 to 100 years—the Crepe Myrtle tree offers an incredible sight to behold. This tree is ideal for those looking to elevate their outdoor garden areas with its flowering period surpassing many additional trees for an average total of 100 days. 

Desert Willow

If you’re looking for something that’s beautiful to the passing eye, but is slightly easier to take care of from day to day—the Desert Willow tree is the one for you. This desert tree thrives in the Texas sunshine and does particularly well when planted on a slightly raised area when it’s in a location that typically receives over 30 inches of rainfall each year. 


The Vitex boasts a wide cover of lilac flowers that will easily bring a sense of wonder to Central Texas when it begins to bloom in late spring and doesn’t cease until the fall weather begins to creep in—well worth a place in any individuals’ garden.


Finally, the classic Magnolia tree simply has to be placed within the rankings of our favorite flowering trees throughout Central Texas. With a blooming period of six months and the pristine, large white flowers it produces—the Magnolia tree is sure to be a staple piece no matter where it’s planted throughout the neighborhood. 

Springtime at its finest

At Ben & Annie’s Trees for Tomorrow, we’re constantly working to share the importance of planting new trees with those around us—and it doesn’t hurt that they also offer a truly beautiful sight to behold on top of the environmental benefits already included with every tree planted around the world.
