Fragrant Flowering Trees for Mid-Atlantic Gardens

Regional Gardening, Best Trees, Mid-Atlantic Gardening


Hardy and exquisite-looking trees are important elements in Mid-Atlantic gardens. They are the most permanent and dominant elements in the landscape. There is a tremendous amount of possibilities in terms of trees to pick for your yard: evergreen or deciduous trees, spring or summer blooms, fall color interest, leaf shape, exfoliating bark, growth habit, etc.

Choosing a delightfully fragrant tree adds to your overall enjoyment in spring or summer when its scent hangs beautifully in the air.

You may want to grow these remarkable flowering trees to perfume your garden and your home. As you will note, some are top performers and have received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society!
