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-catching 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.
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.

I have had this tree before at another home. It is the Queen of Dogwoods. The beauty in spring and fall is overwhelming! Don Shadow created an outstanding tree. I can’t wait to order my new one.
Came in great shape today April 3rd. Packaged well. Was surprised at how tall it was at 4ft 9inches and very well branched with foliage starting to grow. THANK YOU. GOT IT DELIVERED IN 2 DAYS. Keeping in open box to get it used to our temperature and not in sun. Will plant Wednesday, but will water now.
I received my Celestial Shadow Dogwood quickly. It came in a large box with another tree, both being secured in the box so there was no movement or crushing. When I opened the box I couldn't believe what a beautiful tree this was, although I shouldn't have been surprised as this in the norm when I order from FastGrowing Trees. Nicely shaped and larger than expected, very healthy. I can honestly say if this tree dies it would be nobodies fault but my own or possibly one of our nasty Iowa winters that passes through every few years. I have had it in the ground now for a couple of weeks and it's already putting out new growth. I am very happy with this tree!
Very happy with this tree so far. Very easy to plant and it was packed with care so there was no damage during shipping. I look forward to enjoying the white flowers next spring.
Daughter asked for tree for her birthday and when I ordered they came fast and heathy!
