Design IdeasThis great old-fashioned flowering tree is the talk of the town in spring. Plant it as a single specimen in the front yard for show, or keep it all to yourself in the back. Grows large enough to be considered a shade tree, but best planted as an accent. Best not planted in lawns but in shrub borders, wide foundation planters and as an early spring standout in the perennial bed.
