Bright spring flowers and vibrant fall foliage

Prepare your lawn for multiple seasons of exciting color with the Celestial Shadow Dogwood. Early every spring hundreds of bright, cotton white blooms will emerge all over the tree. Then unique variegated leaves will fill in.

The leaves aren't your average dogwood leaves because they have creamy white stripes around the edges with a lush green center. Most people have never seen a dogwood tree with leaves like these before!

To make things even more interesting, once fall rolls around the leaves become infused with shades of fuchsia and purple. The bright leaves provide unique shades of fall color that are rarely seen on trees. The eye caching shades of purple will capture everyone's attention until the leaves drop in the winter.

The Celestial Shadow Dogwood is the perfect accent tree. With its small size of only growing to about 25 tall and 20 feet wide it can fit anywhere. Even the smallest planting spaces can be graced by its beauty.

By growing naturally into a vase shape with multiple trunks the Celestial Shadow Dogwood always has a breathtaking form that causes it to pop as the most dazzling flowering tree in the neighborhood.

It may be pretty, but it's also tough. This dogwood can handle a large variety of poor soil types, and it also has a high level of disease and pest resistance. Plant this tree and forget it, because it can almost take care of itself.

Supplies of this new and unique dogwood are selling out fast. We recommend ordering yours today, before they are all gone.

Promising Dogwood- looking forward to Spring in NC
Tree arrived in really good packaging and planted it right before the first frost. Appears healthy and looking forward to it adding to the front yard where I had to cut down a River Birch tree due to its quest for water in the neighbors yard.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Celestial Shadow Dogwood

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Celestial Shadow 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 Celestial Shadow Dogwood again after the transplant is complete.

I always liked the look and the size of a dogwood. Didn't want a huge tree in the front yard . Also this tree appears to be a dogwood hybrid that is more resistant against diseases.

We were told by your knowledgable customer service representative that this best fit the area where we live. Without his help, we would have ordered something inappropriate for our climate.

Planting 3 Dogwoods in 5 'Diameter raised planter to have colors inter-twine. This one is white w/ variegated foliage, 25' tall.
Planted with pink dogwood, 15-25' tall, and a red pygmy Flowering dogwood 8' tall.
Gretchen W on Jun 23, 2017
I'm not sure if this the Dogwood I have seen around town and the one I want, because I could not see a picture of the flower petals which are to be pointed on ends instead of rounded or heart shaped.

How quickly will the Shadow Dogwood mature?
Camron P on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They grow 1-2 feet per year.
Are the leaves on the celestial shadow dogwood curly?
Ada A on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They were early spring but now have nice green leaves....
Is it dear resistant?
Denise L on Sep 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We live on Hilton Head Island and have many deer in our yard that eat most everything. They have not touched either of our Dogwoods yet, although only one is really low enough for them to nibble. I will say that we grew beautiful Dogwoods in Aiken, SC, for some reason they have not done as well in the soil on Hilton Head. Hope this helps.
what time of year is it best to plant ?
texas eddie on Jan 2, 2018
what is the root system like? Will it tear up sidewalks or interfere with sewer, water, gas lines?
Sunnia E on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine is still at a very early stage. But I did a detailed search about the tree prior to purchasing. Their roots are not aggressive at all. They are pretty shallow. So I don't see them causing any problems at all. I have also seen grown ones along side walks in my subdivision.
Can these trees be ripped in June?
Susue on Jun 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.
What PH count should we have for a Celestial Shadow Dogwood? Will it be okay in 7.0?
Sandi S on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The soil of your planting site should be well drained, with a 5.5 pH level.
Can this tree grow in a container?
Ali C on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: YES! I've had mine in a large container for the past year, and it's doing very well.
