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.

• Europeans used the bark to cure mange on dogs, thus creating the name "Dogwood"
You’ll want to consider making this all-American tree part of your own landscape.
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.
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.
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.
