Vibrant Pink Dogwood is Easy to Grow

  • Pink spring-time blooms
  • Adaptable to various types of soil
  • Drought tolerant
  • Grows in sun or shade

These trees look great all year... but can literally stop traffic in the springtime with their vibrant pink blooms.

Grows rapidly to a mature height of 15-25 ft.

Pretty pink flowers start lighter in color, and then get slightly deeper as your tree ages... never giving you the same color twice! These blooms are even more remarkable when displayed against their own dark green background when its leaves appear.

Dogwoods are one of the first trees to bloom... putting everyone in a spring mood, weeks early.

In autumn, these green leaves turn a fiery red, marking the end of summer and bringing color to your fall landscape.

Gray stems with a bright red fruit and a cinnamon checkered bark offer winter interest, especially with a snowfall.

The fruit of the Pink Dogwood is an important source of winter food for many songbirds, including robins, cardinals and waxwings. Don't be surprised if you see Wild Turkey, as well.

This low-branching tree will grace your landscape in all four seasons, especially when grouped with White and Red Dogwoods.

Arrives Healthy
We have grown this tree in our nursery and have procedures in place to ensure that it will be ready to flourish upon arrival.  When you unbox it, you'll see that it has a full root system intact. Many nurseries dig Dogwoods out of the ground, then wash the dirt off the roots. This "bare rooting" process harms the root system, and you basically have to start from scratch with a damaged plant. We ship with the original root system in place.  Just plant and enjoy.

OMG!! I just recieved my pink dogwood and I am amazed on how pretty it is. I was expecting and dorment tree, but it was great to see leaves and flowers on it. Will order from you again
January 1, 2013
I got a pink dogwood in 2006 it was 3 feet tall. It bloomed the next year. It is now about seven ft. tall and looks healthy. It is in a mostly sunny spot.
January 1, 2013
I was expecting Charlie Brown twigs but received 3 healthy young trees with a good number of leaves. Planted in the fall of 2011. A few years ago I planted 3 dogwoods from a reputable local nursery which died successively each month until all were gone in the 3rd month despite diligent care. I used tree tone and the gator jrs on these 3 from your company and I'm happy to report that they are healthy, growing and going strong in July 2012. I only wish that dogwoods grew more quickly. I am very pleased with the quality of the trees, and the friendly folks in customer service who answered my questions about the trees. I've told a number of people about your company.

Best dogwood I ever purchased
I love this plant it was a lovely addition to my yard.

Greenwich , CT
Not Enough Time To Tell, But
We were amazed at the quality, size and apparent hardiness of the tree when it was delivered. We ordered and planted it in late Fall so it is too early to report on growth, (Early Feb), but it has done well so far during the Winter, and it has a lot of new buds on it.

So far so good!

Planting & Care



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


Pink Dogwood Planting Diretions Plant your Pink Dogwood Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Pink Dogwoods prefer to receive partial shade, but can tolerate full sun. Plant your Pink Dogwood Trees about five feet apart for a privacy screen.

Pink Dogwood Trees prefer slightly acidic soil, but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. Give your Pink Dogwood Tree a deep watering once a week.

Dogwood trees often don't require fertilizer, but to give your tree a boost fertilize it with a general fertilizer like 10-10-10 early in the Spring. Pink flowers blossom in the Spring. Pink Dogwood Tree's green leaves turn a vibrant red in the Fall and during the colder months red berries emerge that attract various types of birds.

Jacilyn N on May 8, 2018
I had a limited budget & could only choose one item for now. And, I've always wanted a Pink Dogwood tree. When I read about the way Fast-Growing Trees does the roots for their trees it seemed a very good place to buy my tree. I'm also new to gardening and didn't have a clue as to what I would need in order to plant it. So, I especially appreciated the fact that they had all of the necessary items already lined up with explanations as to their functions.

Julie G on Sep 14, 2014

what are the best growing conditions for a Pink Dogwood Tree ?
Vicki T on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Choose a planting site for your Dogwood that receives light or filtered shade. Dogwood trees are highly adaptable to many soil types. However, they thrive best in moist, fertile soils high in organic matter. The soil of your planting site should be well drained, with a 5.5 pH level.
Do you need to spray pink dogwoods with anything?
Becky B on Jun 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No , fertilize in the spring and fall , ours looked dead this year, but the leaves came out of the brown buds.
My frient told me Pink Dogwood can survive in wet soil. I plan to plant it in the corner of my backyard where always has water cumulation during the raining days. During the raining season, the water can stay there for a week. Can Pink Dogwood really can survive there? I live in Chicago (zone 5).
Tinawu on Jun 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Pink Dogwood's soil should be moist but not over saturated. Don't let it sit in standing water. Dogwood trees possess very shallow root systems that are susceptible to drying out in the absence of regular rainfall. It is best to water your tree once or twice a week. Be sure, though, to water correctly. Light green leaves are a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves signify both over watering and under watering. Watch for these and any other signs that your tree is getting too much or too little water.

The Pink Dogwood will survive in Chicago.
Can this tree be planted in the spring?
Elizabeth L on May 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I assume so...we planted our Dogwoods in the spring, and they seem fine to me.
Can it be planted near a fence?
Jeannine C on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe it would need to be 4-5 feet out. It would also need to receive a little shade as well, as a fence can reflect back heat and over stress the tree. Also, make sure the soil is loamy and if not, mix in a generous portion of peat moss or leaf mold or something like that, and be sure it's well drained, but that you don't allow it to dry out completely. I'm still experimenting with getting them to take. I have 2 new ones this year that seem to have a chance.
Can dogwoods be planted in smaller spaces in my yard?
Gina W on Feb 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From my experience they grow slowly, but they will spread out as they do and it depends on the size of the space. They are a small tree but need at least a good 20 feet.x 20 feet. You might be able to train it through judicious pruning
how many feet per year does it grow?
Cindy D on Jun 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The average growth rate is 12-18" per year.

When should I plant the pink dogwood in southeast Texas ?
Carmell C on Jun 1, 2017
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. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.

glenda l on Aug 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most people prefer to plant in the spring or fall. You can also plant in the summer you would just want to make sure the tree is getting enough water when the temperatures are up.
I live in Bakersfield Ca, the area where I would like to put a tree is in the west part of my yard. In the summer temps get very very hot up to 108 and the tree will be in this hot sun most of the day. Having said all that will a pink dogwood survive in this kind of enviroment?
Maxine H on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Maxine
I believe you are in zone 9a-9b. If you plant your dogwood bareroot in late winter, very early spring it should have time to establish before the heat arrives. For the first year you may have to baby it on very hot days ( a patio umbrella temporarily works well). If it planted in sun to dappled shade it will do better. Happy Gardening
