There are a few choices available to you if you are looking for blooming trees that produce white blossoms in the month of March. If you are able to hold out until April, when such plants begin to flower, you will have a far larger selection to choose from. Landscaping trees with early spring flowers that are able to handle the various climates that the United States Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zones throw at them attain different sizes and, as a result, serve a variety of functions. These trees can be found in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3b through 9b.
USDA Zone 2 and Zone 3
Because of the cold temperatures in USDA Zone 2, no trees will have white blossoms in March. Late in the month of March might be when the American plum develops its white blooms in Zone 3, provided that the weather is favourable. The appearance of the blooms comes before that of the leaves, which results in an impressively attractive show. During the month of April, European bird cherries have clusters of snowy white blossoms that hang down from their branches. The tree may reach a height of forty feet and does best in well lit environments. The cold-resistant Manchurian cherry tree doesn’t start blooming until the end of April. It is only in the warmer sections of Zone 2 that it will blossom, producing its white flowers in clusters that may be up to 24 inches long.
USDA Zone 4 and Zone 5
In Zones 4 and 5, the arrival of spring is signalled by the appearance of white blossoms on downy serviceberries in the month of March. The tree, which may reach heights of up to 25 feet, thrives in shaded forest edges or close proximity to bodies of water. The Japanese type of star magnolia is an evergreen tree that may grow up to 20 feet tall and is often used as a foundation plant. March is the month that it blooms in these zones. In all zones, trees such as Juneberries, English hawthorns, and several kinds of blooming crabapples get their white blossoms as a gift from the rains of April. Place groves of the eastern redbud cultivar Royal White and watch for the appearance of its pure white blossoms in the month of April.
USDA Zone 6 and Zone 7
There is a hint of pink to the goblet-shaped, white blooms that bloom on a kobus magnolia during the month of March in Zone 6 and Zone 7 respectively. The Kobus magnolia may reach heights of 30 feet and is an excellent tree for patios. In these warmer zones, Yulan, David’s peach, and Yoshino cherry all display white blossoms throughout the month of March. Flowering dogwood cultivars such as “Cloud Nine” and “Cherokee Princess” peak in their beauty throughout the month of April. Growing to a height of 35 feet, the Carolina silverbell is an attractive option for use as a specimen tree in lawns. The white flowers, which are shaped like bells and bloom in clusters of as many as five, appear in April, either before or together with the leaves.
USDA Zone 8, Zone 9 and Zone 10
The greatest results will be achieved by planting almond trees in USDA Zones 8 and 9 on sandy soil and placing them in full sun. The fragrant white blooms that appear in March produce nuts that may be eaten around the end of the year. In each of the three zones, the March branches of the tung-oil tree are highlighted by the appearance of white flowers with crimson spread centres. If you are able to locate a jacktree at a nursery near you, you should plant it in well-draining acidic regions so that you may take benefit of the white blossoms that resemble stars in the month of April. The golden leaves of the jacktree, which gives it attractiveness in the autumn, may grow into Zone 10 from Zone 6.
