We have a hard time keeping these small ornamental trees in stock! One look, and you'll know why they are so popular.

It's easy to decorate your landscape with these incredibly showy trees! Typically, these are smaller growing trees—under 25 feet tall—that deliver much more than just shade.

Use them near your outdoor seating area as a beautiful feature. Or pump up your curb appeal with an ornamental tree in your front yard.

Deciduous flowering ornamental trees add pizzazz in the spring and gorgeous foliage in the summer and fall. Ornamental evergreen trees add a decorative touch that provides year-round color and a double helping of personality.

What Makes A Tree Ornamental?

While each ornamental tree is unique, there are some common themes:

  • Diminutive size that easily fits in courtyards, small space gardens and outdoor containers
  • More flowers, larger blooms with increased pigmentation or unique colorways
  • Dramatic red and bronze coloring in newly emerging leaves and new growth
  • Columnar forms with highly fastigiate branching habit
  • Picturesque weeping forms that tells a lyrical garden story
  • Vivid fall color and decorative fruit or seed pods
  • Improved landscape performance and disease resistance

Enjoy Multiple Seasons of Interest, Including Winter

Many ornamental trees offer scintillating spring color and gorgeous summer foliage that burnishes to robust fall color display. But don't forget about wintertime!

Plants that lose their foliage in the winter months can also have eye-catching attributes that add to your landscape. Deciduous ornamental trees feature branches and bark that can get overlooked during the growing season.

During the spare and dreary winter season, rely on other desirable traits for interest. Harry Lauder's Walking Stick is a perfect example, with its remarkable twisting and turning branches.

After a plant flowers, there will be some kind of fruit or seed that can be very ornamental. Magnolias have orange seeds that are very decorative, and Flowering Cherries and Plums also produce beautiful fruits that are excellent for wildlife, as well.

Weeping forms are outstanding in all seasons. Sculptural Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud has a fantastic fountain-like look, no matter what season it is.

Weeping ornamental trees are favorites of many homeowners. The long graceful weeping branches attract attention and seem to give a sense of peace and calm to a yard.

Let's not forget the bark either. The peeling and exfoliating bark that you find on some plants, like Birch trees, is highly ornamental and worth highlighting with outdoor lighting.

Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry is a four-season ornamental tree. Sweet white flowers, edible blue-red fruit, and noteworthy fall color is matched by a lovely form and smooth, gray bark.

Ornamental trees can be deciduous or evergreen. Evergreens tend to derive their ornamental appeal from unique shapes or sizes.

Tips for Planting and Growing Ornamental Trees

The best thing you can do is study your lot. Map out the low-lying areas that stay damp after rain...and chart the amount of sun hours you receive in each area.

Find out what your Growing Zone is by typing it into the Zone Finder on each product page. Plants are sensitive to both heat and cold...find the plants rated for your zone.

Next, look for plants that match your environmental conditions. Each product page has a Plant Highlights section that gives you information on Sun Exposure, from full sun or partial shade to full shade.

Check the Mature Height and Spread to find an Ornamental tree that will fit into your location. You can custom-prune many trees...but a good cultivar selection might remove that hassle all together.

Move quickly when you find the tree you want. Place your order at any time of year, we'll hold it for you until the time is right for planting in your area.

Track your sturdy box right to your doorstep. Open it up and give it a long drink to hydrate it.

Dig your planting hole twice as wide as the root, but no deeper. Keep trees at the same level they grew at the nursery.

Symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster forms a helpful relationship with the feeder roots of your new tree. It never wears out, but supports your landscape investment it's whole life.

Tap your plant out of it's nursery pot. If you bought a bareroot plant, soak the roots for several hours to rejuvenate your new tree.

Press the backfill soil around your tree. Soak the soil to remove air pockets at the root zone.

Here's the Right Way to Water Your New Plants >>

Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the roots, then pull it back away from touching the trunk. Plan to reapply mulch every few years as needed.
