White Clusters of Flowers Each Spring and Crimson Fall Foliage


Beautiful White Spring Blossoms
Welcome spring with an exciting show of creamy white flowers from May to June! Dark green foliage is surrounded by flower clusters with four round inch-wide bracts. The show of delicate flowers on a strong structure is a beautiful sight that returns year after year.

Versatile
There is no wrong place to plant this delightful tree. It grows perfectly well as a focal point of your landscape and doesn't need accompanying trees to make a statement. It reaches a compact size of 15 to 25 feet tall in your yard and will grow taller if planted in a wooded area. The 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-and is especially eye-catching tree when planted in rows.

Create contrast by planting near red and pink dogwoods, or against a backdrop of evergreens.

Easy to Grow
The White Dogwood is not finicky.  It's adaptable to various soil types including acidic, loamy, rich, sandy or even clay, and is drought tolerant. It will thrive in full sun as long as the soil is fertile and moisture-rich, yet does best in partial shade.

Fall and Winter Interest
Deep green-colored leaves transform to a fierce scarlet hue in the fall.  Your landscape will light up with amazing autumn color signaling the change of seasons. Red berries also emerge providing nourishment and a place to congregate for an array of songbirds - and up to thirty-six other species.  Deer, wild turkey, quail, chipmunks and rabbits are amongst the many wildlife known to be attracted to the dogwood's fruit.

Did you know?

- The White Dogwood is a native tree cultivated in 1731.
- 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"

Each spring you'll be rewarded with the most beautiful treen on the block, while each fall presents an encore performance with even more stunning color.  Place your order while we still have them in stock.

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

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!

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.

satisfied with caveats
I have two white dogwood trees for a year. They arrived to us ~4'. Last summer was hot and they had a tough time--they take lots of sun and weren't happy around august. got white on leaves. when late fall came, one tree had big "balls" on the end of stems--other one didn't. This spring at ~5' tall, the former exploded with blooms. The leaves on that one are much smaller than the one that hasn't bloomed; we wonder why. But, that flowerless one is growing extremely rapidly. i moved it from the side of the house--yes, transplanted it--a week ago. Everyone said it would go into shock. Honestly, it has grown in a week and looks even better now.
i wish I could post a photo here. At the end of the day, they're both absolutely beautiful!! Would buy again.

Shipping time
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 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

Planting & Care



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


White Dogwood Planting Diretions

White dogwoods (Cornus florida) are a beautiful sign that spring has arrived! These flowering ornamental trees perform well in a wide range of soil and climates in USDA growing from zones 5-8. They will grow in almost any soil type from clay to loamy and can tolerate moist or well draining soils. Slowly growing to a height of 20-30 feet tall and 20 feet wide, they bloom in the very early spring before most other spring trees, even when it can still seem winter like outside. These trees can grow in full sun, but prefer dappled shade. They’re great not only for the spring flower show, but also their red fall foliage and bright red winter berries that attract a host of wildlife.

Location: Choose a planting site for your dogwood that receives light or filtered shade. dogwood trees are highly adaptable to many soil types but they thrive in moist, fertile soils high in organic matter. The soil of your planting site should be well draining with a 5.5 soil pH level.

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a planting hole for your dogwood that is three times the diameter of your tree’s root ball and of equal depth.
2) Remove your dogwood from its container and ensure good root moisture.
3) Place your tree in the planting hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground.
4) Adjust your tree’s position/angle then use the original soil to back fill the planting hole.
5) Spread the roots out evenly and surround them with soil, tamping down lightly as you fill to avoid air pockets, which can dry out the roots of your tree.
6) Avoid firming the soil at this point, instead water the area immediately to settle the soil.
7) Mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture. This will also keep competing growth (grass and weeds) from growing around the planting site.

Watering: dogwood trees possess very shallow root systems that are susceptible to drying out in the absence of regular rainfall. It’s best to water your tree once or twice a week. Be sure to water correctly, light green leaves are a sign of over watering while drooping leaves signify both over and under watering. Watch for these and any other signs that your tree is getting too much or too little water.

Fertilization: dogwood trees do not require much fertilization. If you choose to fertilize, do so sparingly in April or May. Any general purpose fertilizer is suitable for this.

Weed Control: Do not permit weeds or grasses any closer than 2-3 feet from your dogwood in the first year. Pull the weeds initially, and then utilize a growing mat or mulch. Insulate the roots 2-4 inches and replenish as needed. Do not spray RoundUp on a young dogwood and ensure that wind doesn't blow chemical drift onto your tree.

Pests & Disease: The best defense against any pest or disease issue is a healthy tree. Good soil, proper feeding & healthy watering habits are vital to the prosperity of your tree.

Deer: If you believe that deer may become an issue for your dogwood, consider caging the tree(s). Although there is a whole host of deer deterrents available, nothing will guarantee protection like caging will.

Winter Dormancy: During late fall and winter, your dogwood will enter its dormant state. When this occurs, your tree’s leaves will fall off and the stem will turn brown. Above ground, nothing will take place during this time, but the roots of your tree will continue to grow beneath the surface. This winter root development will accelerate the growth of your tree come spring.

What time of year is best to plant a dogwood tree?
Becky R on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.

louann m on Sep 22, 2016

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
