Why Summer Splash™ Dogwood Trees?

Welcoming spring with a profusion of small white blooms and ushering in summer with unique variegated foliage, the Summer Splash™ Dogwood Tree lives up to its name. And unlike other similar springtime varieties, it delivers unbelievable color variation throughout the year.

The month-to-month interest begins with flowers in spring. Then, summer highlights this tree's bright, variegated evergreen foliage...a first for the Dogwood family. Its new growth is a rich red with pops of yellow and cream, transforming your yard into the best on the block.

And you won't need a lot of space to grow the Summer Splash™. Because it's a semi-dwarf tree with dense, shrubby foliage, you can utilize it as a focal point in your front yard or as hedging along your driveway. No matter where it's planted, it turns heads, delighting guests and neighbors alike.

We’ve grown your Dogwood Tree with care at our nursery…now, it’s ready to thrive as soon as it arrives at your door.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a planting site for your Summer Splash™ with well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight with some afternoon shade).

Dig a planting hole for your dogwood that is two times the width of your tree’s root ball and just as deep. Place your tree in the planting hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground. Backfill your soil, water to settle the roots, and tamp down the surrounding soil.

Finally, mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture.

2. Watering: Water your tree weekly or check the surrounding soil for dryness. If your soil is dry about 3 or 4 inches down, water the area.

FGT Tip: Lighter green leaves are a sign of overwatering, while drooping leaves can signal underwatering.

3. Fertilizing: Dogwood Trees do not require feeding, but if you use fertilizer, feed your tree in April or May with any general-purpose fertilizer.
