Sargent's Cherry Tree (Prunus sargentii)
Sargent's cherry trees (Prunus sargentii) bear deep pink blooms in spring, followed by dark green leaves. As summer ends, the foliage takes on shades of orange, red and bronze. Sargent's cherry trees hold their interest even in winter, thanks to their cinnamon-colored bark and dark fruits, which often attract hungry birds.
River birch (Betula nigra)
Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida)
'Prairifire' Crabapple (Malus 'Prairifire')
Sweetgum Tree (Liquidambar styraciflua)
The American Sweetgum bursts into a kaleidoscope of color in autumn, when its leaves range from red to burgundy, purple and yellow. During the spring and summer, the star-shaped leaves are a glossy green.
