Red Tip Hedges and Red Bud Trees

Every year in Spring the large Red Tip hedge out in the front yard puts on its beautiful red leaves, which is the new growth for the year.  They make a wonderful hedge, because their leaves stay green all year.  It took ten years for this hedge to fill in and grow 12 feet tall. We use this hedge for privacy between us and the busy highway that runs in front of our property.

This hedge is getting ready to put on its big white bloom heads, made up of  numerous small flowers.  Some of the leaves are very red and some orange in color.  These are the buds that form before they burst into full bloom.

This is the time of the year when the wild Red Bud trees bloom in the woods, many people plant these beautiful trees in their yards too.

The next tree to bloom in the woods and people’s yards will be the Dogwood, which should be beginning to bloom within the week.   Love, this time of the year.
