Ornamental Tree That Attracts Birds

RDH Landscape

The May Day Tree is appropriately named as its pendulous white flowers, many nearly 5″ long, appear in that month after setting its dark green leaves. The flowers have a unique, almost almond scent. For those who wish to attract birds to their landscape, the May Day Tree is a perfect choice to include in your landscape design. The cherry-black fruit is borne after the flowers, is approximately 1/4″, and is adored by birds. It reaches a height of 25′, spreads to about 20′ in Colorado and is hardy to zone 3. While preferring a bit more moisture, it is tolerant of most well-drained soils. It is generally available as a single stem or multi-stem tree. Hardy and reliable, the May Day Tree is an asset to any bird-loving gardener.
