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.

Matures at 20-30 feet...grows in Shade or Sun. Grows in most soils including acidic, loamy, rich, sandy or even clay.

- George Washington planted it at Mt. Vernon, as did Thomas Jefferson at Monticello.
- Early Native Americans made medicinal teas from its bark.
- 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.

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

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

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!
December 31, 2012
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.

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

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

I love the tree, but I'm kind of skeptical on whether or not it will survive. I ordered the tree in the summer when it was warm but the tree shipped at the end of September when it's cold here in Michigan. I planted it but the cold weather is already causing the leaves to wilt. I'm just not sure there was enough time for the tree to get established. I guess we will see. The tree looked very nice when it shipped though!

My dogwood tree
Hello... This probably isn't the best place for this... My tree arrived almost dead... I followed the instructions and now I believe it truly is dead... My landscaper agreed... I would like a refund back to the card I used.... I will probably still purchase some shrubs at a later date... I have to wait on that until the pool is in... Thanks and please contact me if you need any additional information from my card... Or if you need pictures of the tree... Sharyn Gagne

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your White Dogwood



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Emerald Green Thuja.

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 Emerald Green Thuja 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 Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

I needed to replace a very old dogwood that is down to 2 flowering branches and straining to reach light. This new one will be located near to, but in a more central location where there is more sun.

I planted a dogwood tree in the fall of 1990. It has only produced a fully bloomed tree three or four times. Most of the time it doesn't have a full bloomed tree. But this year, December, 2014, it has produce red berry clusters for the first time. What is the lifespan, and why has my tree acted like so slowlt? I live in Powder Springs, GA, outside of the west side of Atlanta, GA. It has complete sunlight. Thanks.

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 :)
I planted my white dog wood 3 years ago and it only leaves in spring and I still have not seen any blooms, is there something else I should be doing?
Betty Q on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There could be a number of reasons why. Nitrogen fertilizer (for grass) could also cause flowering trees not to bloom. Dogwood trees do not require much fertilization. If you choose to fertilize your tree, do so sparingly in April or May. Any general purpose fertilizer is suitable for this. Not enough or too much sun can cause them not to bloom. Improper pruning, dogwoods dont require pruning. If you do prune them for shaping, only prune them after they have bloomed. They will not bloom if they dont receive enough water. They need 1 inch of water a week.
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.

joseph m on Oct 2, 2014

What about the depth of the roots and do they want to knock brick retaining walls down? My neighbors 'helped' cut down my beautiful, tastey apricot tree. I have since been told that I could have cut the rogue roots and all could have been well.
Gail B on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gail
Don't you love helpful neighbors? The root system of the white dogwood while extensive is very shallow. It should be fine to plant near the retaining wall. The White Dogwood is a very slow growing tree, therefore you would have plenty of time to trim any roots heading towards the retaining wall. It has always been one of my most favorite flowering trees.Let us know how we can help, contact our sales department at 1 888 504-2001 Happy Gardening

Also, I'm in zone 7, in a high wind area. What would be the best location for this tree?

Thank you.
S L on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The best ratio tends to be 12-4-8 or 16-4-8. These ratios are high in nitrogen is what the tree needs to form leaves, however, too much nitrogen can limit the amount of flowers.
how big is the ball on 4-5 ft dogwood and how big are they for a 5-6 eastern redbud ?
vernon s on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 5' white dogwood shipped to us by FGT arrived in a 10" x 10" x 5' box. It was shipped without dirt so there was no root ball like you would normally expect. The roots were exposed and about 12" in length so when planted, the tree was only about 4' high. Our tree has survived two Massachusetts winters and is thriving.
I'm so in love with the white dogwood flowers, but I live in Southern California, would the tree survive here at all?
June N on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Southern California is too hot for this tree. You could try a Natchez Crape Myrtle.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
