Taiwan flowering cherries can be seen blooming from late January until February in Louisiana. In addition to the great abundance of attractive flowers, there is a great deal of production of colorful, deep pink leaves before the flowers have even emerged. There are only a few flowering cherries that grow reliably in this part of the world. This tree is one of them.
A similar type of flowering cherry is known as the Okame flowering cherry, and it is also very suitable for Louisiana, and is highly recommended, since it is a late bloomer with flowers that are not damaged by freezing, and it is more likely to flourish in Louisiana’s north. The flowers of this plant grow in pale pink color during the months of March or April.

In February, the fragrant flowers appear before the foliage, and they’re very large and tulip-shaped, between 4 and 6 inches across. On the outside, they’re pale pink to purple, while on the inside they’re a deep white. The Asiatic magnolia is known for its long lifespan and reliability, but does need a sunny, well-drained location in order to grow well.
Compared with the related star magnolia, it grows smaller, growing only between 10 and 12 feet high. The unusual star-shaped flowers are a combination of white and pale pink, and are a delight to smell. With blossoms appearing between late January and February before the foliage emerges, the star magnolia makes a wonderful selection for small gardens.
