Answer: Chionanthus, the fringe tree, is a lovely spring bloomer. Chilopsis, Cercis (redbud), Chorisia speciosa (floss silk tree) and Franklinia alatamaha are also good choices. Erythrina (coral tree), Lagerstroemia (crape myrtle) and flowering crabapple are other good picks. Each blooms in spring, has a compact growth habit, and very few bad habits, making them good choices for planting near homes.
