Stunning Flowers On A Compact Tree

Cloud 9 Dogwood trees are cold hardy to zone 5 with a much higher tolerance for freezing temperatures, ice and snow than other dogwood varieties. If your area has harsh winter weather then the Cloud 9 Dogwood is the top choice for a flowering dogwood in your landscape.

Once Cloud 9 Dogwoods bloom in the spring everyone stops to marvel at their striking beauty as it puts them in a euphoric state. Their iconic white blossoms provide a floral show that can’t be missed.

Clusters of large, pure white blooms cover the entire canopy and cause it to look like your landscape has a bright white cloud floating in it. Your neighbors will love coming by your home to glance at the gigantic flowers again and again. 

The white flowers glow, and illuminate the landscape especially when the Cloud 9 Dogwood’s dark, lush leaves fill in behind them to create a vibrant display of contrasting colors.

Cloud 9 Dogwood leaves also fill in to give the canopy an attractive rounded shape making it the perfect choice for an ornamental tree in the summer. In the fall the leaves turn a remarkable shade of reddish purple, which serves as an opening act for their winter color show.  

When Cloud 9 Dogwoods drop their leaves ornamental red berries emerge on every branch, filling the empty winter landscape with blazing color. While your neighbor’s yards are empty during the colder seasons, yours will still have breath-taking color.

Birds are a delight to watch in the winter as they come to snack on the red berries. You’ll be able to watch them nest in your tree from the comfort of your own home.

Cloud 9 Dogwood Trees only grow between 15 to 20 feet tall, so they fit perfectly in any landscape, even in smaller ones. They will bring color and beauty to your yard and won’t outgrow the space. 

The Cloud 9 Dogwood can be referred to as the ‘hands free’ dogwood, because it’s very low maintenance. With a high resistance to pests, diseases and deer once planted Cloud 9 Dogwoods take care of themselves. 

Simply plant your new Cloud 9 Dogwood trees and step back to enjoy seasons of fuss free beauty.

Great Decision
This was the first time we ordered a tree online and could not be happier. It was packaged well so undamaged upon arrival, and it is flourishing in our yard. Healthy foliage and growth of about 1 1/2 feet since April.

Will order from this supplier again.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cloud 9 Dogwood

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cloud 9 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 Cloud 9 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 Cloud 9 Dogwood again after the transplant is complete.

Wanted a smaller dogwood that won't overwhelm other plants, & like that gets berries for the birds.
Ruth C on Sep 26, 2016
Like the idea of flowers in Spring, dark green foliage, red color in Autumn, and berries in the winter. Seems to be the right size for my front yard. Also promised to be cold hardy, which is important!

Smaller size, and something to offer in every season.

Are all Dogwood tree's berries dangerous for dogs?
Seth A on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In all my (online) research before and after buying this tree, I've gathered that dogwood berries are not particularly dangerous for dogs to eat. It's possible that if they eat too much they could develop gastrointestinal upset like nausea and diarrhea. But I do not believe they are toxic. Check with the ASPCA or a vet to be absolutely sure.
When is best time of year to go plan? I'm in western NC.
Gretta on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I assume you mean plant. Pretty much everywhere for almost all trees and plants is early fall, once all high heat is over. It's always easier to survive winter than summer for plants.
