Flowering Trees

Our flowering trees will create a picturesque scene in any outdoor space, in any season. When spring blossoms arrive, these trees are drenched in lovely, fragrant flowers, which may attract beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds. And you can clip the flowers to create your own natural bouquets. In summer, gorgeous green leaves cover the tree and help to provide gentle, cooling shade. Fall brings stunning foliage in exquisite, warm colors like red, orange, yellow and more. Even in winter, when some of these trees are bare, the graceful branches make it a striking addition to your yard. You can use one flowering tree to create a landscape focal point or plant multiple trees in a row to create an attractive border or privacy fence.

Enter your zip code to find your hardiness zone, see which trees and plants are best suited for your area, and learn your next ideal planting time.

Buyer's Guide

For growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things we think you should keep in mind when you’re shopping for a flowering tree.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether or a tree will grow and blossom successfully. Our selection of flowering trees includes varieties that grow in a wide range of areas, from cool, northern regions (as far as Zone 3) to warm, southern regions (as far as Zone 10). No matter what kind of climate you live in, we have a tree to suit your needs. Before ordering, make sure that the tree’s recommended hardiness zone range includes your area.

Shipping Information

Different flowering tree varieties have different growing habits and needs, and we care for them and ship them to you according to their specific requirements. They will ship to you in one of two ways:

  • Bare-root (without soil) — some trees are shipped this way to ensure good contact with your garden soil for easier planting. These trees arrive in a dormant (resting) state without any apparent green growth, but they will spring to life soon after planting. When shipped to you, these trees will be approximately 3-4' tall.
  • EZ Start® bottomless pots — some trees are shipped in these containers, which allow tap roots to be air pruned as they grow out the bottom, so that a dense mass of productive feeder roots can grow within the pot to make transplanting and establishing easier and quicker. These roots also help to accelerate growth rates. When shipped to you, these trees will be approximately 1-2' tall.

Promise of Satisfaction

Every order comes with our promise of satisfaction. If you aren't completely satisfied with your order, let us know within one year for a free one-time replacement or refund. Read more

AnnouncementClose

We have some big news...We're joining with Stark Bro's!

Dear Friends,

I'm very excited to announce that after 75 years, Miller Nurseries will now become part of Stark Bro's, a highly respected nursery company that's been "growing" their famous legacy since 1816.

Who is Stark Bro's?

For nearly 200 years, Stark Bro's has been producing high-quality fruit trees, berries and garden plants for gardeners like you. With their great nursery stock and expert advice, they've been helping generations of families reap not only the rewards of growing their own fruits and nuts, but to enjoy huge savings in the process. Stark Bro's has a long-standing reputation for quality, honesty and really taking care of their customers.

When my brother David passed away suddenly last spring, I knew it was time to retire. One of the first things I did was to call Cameron Brown, the president of Stark Bro's. He is a long-time friend and a very trustworthy fellow, and treats his customers like gold. I knew he would take care of you in exactly the same way. David would have liked this arrangement, and I take comfort in that.

What's going to happen to Miller Nurseries and my customer account?

It's only going to get better as part of the Stark Bro's family. You'll now be able to come here to StarkBros.com and sign in with your existing username and password, and purchase products just like you did on the Miller Nurseries website... only the selection will be much larger! You'll still be able to buy Miller's familiar "Canandaigua Quality" hardy plants as well as the enormous assortment of trees and plants Stark Bro's offers.

We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge our family, our wonderful employees, and especially you - our loyal customers - for your support and patronage over these last 75 years. Thank you for being such an important part of our heritage.

Warm regards,
John Miller, CEO
Miller Nurseries
