Show Off The Most Unique Dogwood Available!

The Ragin’ RedDogwood is the newest variety. Dogwoods are a well-loved tree, known for their enticing flowers and nearly zero upkeep. This brand new variety has everything you love about Dogwoods, and more!

The Deepest red blooms you’ve ever seen. Dogwoods are typically known for their prolific, yet gentle colors. Not this Dogwood! The Ragin’ Red™ lives up to its name with deep-red flowers reminiscent of a fine Cabernet. Undeniably alluring, these flowers will add drama and life to your yard.

Endless ornamental value with no upkeep. Many trees and plants that offer such mesmerizing colors come at a cost - constant maintenance. But just like other Dogwoods, you won’t need to do anything to keep this showstopper in your yard. The Ragin’ Red™ Dogwood is resilient, fast growing, and long-living.

Deep Red blooms last all season. While some vibrant blooms, and even some Dogwoods, lose their color as the growing season goes on, the Ragin’ Red™’s flowers maintain their color throughout the entire season. There’s no need to worry that your tree will become dull or uninteresting at any point!

Wildlife love the Ragin’ Red too. An important food source for robins and cardinals, the berries the Dogwood produces draw in tons of wildlife. Just as the flowers fall and the leaves turn, bright red birds appear to bring back more color to your landscape.

Gorgeous through every season. With a long growing season of deep reds that transition into stunning fall colors and then into fascinating silhouettes during winter, you’ll never get tired of looking at your Ragin’ Red™ Dogwood.

Demand for the newest Dogwood is very high! Everyone wants to show off this stunning new variety of Dogwood, so don’t miss your chance to feature this unique tree in your yard. Order yours today.

Red Dogwood
I won't see it bloom in red until next year, but the tree came in great condition with new growth. Put it in the ground immediately with the root rocket and the new growth didn't fall off from shock. I did not break any roots as it was not root bound and it is flourishing with more new growth. Planted it in mid June in South Carolina in full sun and it is doing great! Excited to see it flourish and bloom next year, as well as the gorgeous red leaves in fall :-)

Quality product and great job shipping!
Red dogwood arrived with minimal wilting. Planted the same day and kept plenty of water on it for two weeks. It is doing well and has completely recovered from shipping. Great job!

Red Dogwood--hope it makes it!
Red Dogwood arrived very very wilted and has not really sprung back. I think it is still alive, though, and I hope that next spring it will have fresh new leaves emerging. If not, I did buy the warranty and will be able to see if this company is good about their warranties (even though i will have to pay for shipping). I ordered a crape myrtle at the same which seems to be doing well.

Missing info
Our tree is actively dying. I was very careful to check that we had the correct zone, read the entire page when ordering to make sure it would be a good fit for our area. After the tree was delivered, we get an informational email stating that this is a shade tree that grows best in the shade! Our entire yard is full sun, and we’ve tried to place lawn furniture to help provide shade but it’s just not going to be enough... most of the leaves are browning. I’m really disappointed because if I knew this when I was purchasing I would have selected a different tree. On the positive, the tree did appear to be healthy when it arrived.

I don't think it has recovered from being shipped. The leaves seem dry as many have brown areas, are drooping and lifeless. There is no new growth. The tree looks the same as when I received it. I water the tree, but nothing positive seems to be happening.

The tree is very good but the transit time is too long.
The tree is very good and healthy, but the transit time is too long. Results: the tree is severely weakened. Can ship faster? And after 11 days of receiving it, I still did not dare to plant it to the ground.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Ragin' Red™ Dogwood

Ragin' Red™ Dogwood  Planting Diretions


You can plant your Ragin’ Red Dogwood anywhere you like, but it will thrive better in certain spaces like under the cover of large evergreens, on a forest edge, surrounded by other Dogwoods, or in partial shade. Dig a hole 2/3 the death of the root ball. Make sure the roots rest slightly above ground level. You can add a layer of mulch, but be sure to keep it away from the trunk. Water immediately to establish the roots.


Watering: Water frequently during the establishment period. If you live in a hot or dry area, you may need to water your tree once a week during the hottest or driest months. Once the tree is established, watering is likely unnecessary.


Pruning: There's no need to prune the Ragin’ Red Dogwood, but if you choose to remove dead or unwanted branches, do so in summer.

The color of the blooms. I already have a tree with white blooms. Also, I am planting the tree next to my dog Milo's grave and thought planting a dogwood would be a nice corny story.

My mom wanted color for her front yard and she loves flowers. I've been looking for a tree to replace her small Oak tree in the front. It's been 2 years, and the Oak hasn't really made the house look beautiful. The Dogwood seems very pleasant, bright, and romantic- just like my mom wants her house to appear. I can't wait to plant it and give my mom something to enjoy for the years to come!

I am replacing a tree lost in last winters ice storm but the area has become partly shaded due to growth of surrounding trees. Although I would like a fruit tree, the location no longer gets full sun. I picked the red dogwood for it's bright color as well as general size and shape.

Are your products guaranteed? We've tried for years, without success, to grow pink dogwood here in Northeast Pennsylvania.
A shopper on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought a red dogwood late last spring. It struggled! Part of the problem was obviously a very hot spring and summer...also dry. After our hard winter, I was surprised to see it leafing out, very late this year as the ground remained cold until the last few weeks. My tree looks healthy. I fertilized with Miracle Gro, not finding a fertilizer specifically for dogwoods. Also, I have two white kornus cousa in the front which are growing well. I am in the very northern part of zone five in Wisconsin.
What color is the trunk of the tree? and what color are the leaves in the spring and fall?thank you
Gail R on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Trunk-an almost dark, charcoal brown. Leaves are green with a little red in them in spring - green in fall.
Just received 4 more - large healthy green leaves. Have 14 - pland to buy more.
Line the driveawy. Absolutely gorgeous.
JESUS C on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would plant at least 10-15ft away from a structure.
are trees pet friendly cats/ leaves not poisonous to animals?
gail b. on Aug 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Dogwood trees can be mildly toxic to animals. If your animal consumes a portion of this tree I would recommend calling your veterinarian.
when is the best time to plant the red dogwood?
caroline a on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In zone 7 - Maryland - planted two end of September into October. Planted one in a little more sun than the other; in the spring, both blossomed and had leaves but the one in the sun, the leaves seemed to start to burn and there was no new growth. Moved the tree to a shady location, mulched and kept it moist. Soon, new growth - about three inches.
Can it live in full sun or mostly afternoon sun? I live in Fayetteville, NC - zone 8b. Gets pretty hot.
Ames47 on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought four trees and planted them on the same side of the house in full sun. Two are doing very well and two are without leaves. Probably due to my planting but I did the same for all trees. Full sun is fine. Water is key to growth.
I planted my red dog wood tree when I got it now it is calling for frost what can I do.?
patricia r on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would make sure it is mulched sell, 2 or 3 inches but leave space around the trunck. It should not touch the trunk. Mine whad beautiful blooms this spring! Planted fall 2015. Peoria, IL. Sherry

Will this do well in a wet area? My water table is 6 inches under the soil where I would like to plant this tree.
Chelsea S on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Chelsea,
Dogwoods are adaptable to several types of soil; however, they do best in moist fertile soil that is very well draining. It would not be recommended planting it in a wet area if it is not well draining. The tree would not make it in a very wet area that is 6 inches under the soil.
Would it be okay to plant this in south Louisiana during the late summer/early fall?
Kim T on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes that would be a great time for planting.
Can you keep these dogwood trees cut down to fit a smaller space?
