Select Native Flowering Trees of Georgia
University Outreach Publication
Native trees have been formed on the anvil of our local environment. Our pests, climate, and soils have combined to generate a wide diversity of native trees. Out of more than 215 native trees in Georgia, there are a few which deserve closer attention for use in landscapes. Within the forest, along field edges, and in swamps are a number of flowering trees -- a splash of color in an ocean of forest green. Many of these native flowering trees are small, having grown below the forest giants, hidden in out-of-the-way places.
Below are listed a number of native flowering trees. Although technically all trees flower, the trees listed below have showy single flowers or flower clusters. These are the tree jewels of Georgia.
