If you’re looking for a colorful spring-esque flowering tree, eastern redbuds are a perfect choice.

Consider planting your serviceberry tree in front of your evergreens, so their spring white petals pop against the dark backdrop, and their fall foliage colors of red, yellow, and orange will stand out beautifully too.

When the flowers’ seed pods are produced after blooming, revealing their bright red seeds, more birds and other wildlife may even visit your property.
