A profusion of full white blooms every spring. Deep green leaves turn scarlet in fall, making your dogwood a beautiful sight in all seasons.

Welcome spring with an exciting show of creamy white flowers! Beautiful blooms appear between March and June, making this a delightful ornamental tree.

This breathtakingly beautiful blizzard of white blossoms is an excellent choice to plant along streets, near large buildings, next to patios or as a property border. An especially eye-catching tree when planted in rows.

Create contrast by planting near red and pink dogwoods, or against a backdrop of evergreens.

Grows to a compact size of 15 to 25 feet tall in your yard. It grows taller if planted in a wooded area.

Red berries appear in the fall and winter attracting songbirds – up to thirty-six species are known to be attracted to the dogwood’s fruit. We have many customers who buy these specifically to attract wild turkey. It's a favorite food of theirs.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your White Dogwood can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your White Dogwood


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your White Dogwood.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your White Dogwood gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your White Dogwood again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I had a huge backyard with no trees in it, so when I was getting ready to sell my house, I bought a White Dogwood tree to add something colorful. The tree arrived fast and it was healthy. Great place and I will order again from here.

By: Vic
My dogwood tree is alive and well and stands about three feet now, with buds of leaves about to sprout from its tiny branches by the end of this month. I will be the envy of the neighborhood when that happens! Thank you for a beautiful product!

By: Patricia in Marietta, GA
We have a large wooded back yard. It has open spots that my white dogwood will accentuate when it matures. Thankfully it has weathered our Georgia drought and hopefully will continue to grow into the beautiful white blossom tree that I have pictured. Thanks!

By: Mary Jane
We bought our first trees about 5 years ago.  They have furry buds on them right now.  Cant wait to see them in the spring!  Dont get discouraged, we have many and they all grow at different rates.  Worth the money, you cant kill them.  People are always stopping by asking what they are.  My neighbors even bought some after seeing ours.

By: Nell Miller
I bought a lot of dogwoods at the same time approx 15 and out of the 15 only 2 didn't survive the hot summer and the cold winter and I tried to replace the red and the white and they were no longer available so I still have a store credit. I plan to cash in soon. But out of the ones I have left I love.

Fine and alive but have not been through all seasons yet.

By: Carolyn Jenkins
A sturdy tree arrived safe and sound. It responded well to care and had a good summer even though the heat was unseasonably high.

Is summer an ok time to plant this tree?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: On the shipping tab up there ^, it says, "... Your White Dogwood can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring." I think I read somewhere else not to plant it on a super hot day. Hope this helps :)

Just how "fast growing" is this White Dogwood tree? What's the average growth rate when planted in full sun?
CAS22 on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: We've had ours for a year now. So far I wouldn't say I've really noticed much height difference, though I'm sure there's some. We've had issues with deer eating it early on. Maybe that is a factor?

How tall is the tree when it arrives?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2014
Best Answer: How tall it is depends on what size you order. The 1 - 2 ft size is at least one foot tall and any where between 1 and 2 feet tall. The 2 - 3 ft size is at least 2 feet tall and anywhere between 2 to 3 ft tall.
