Year-Round Visual Interest and Beauty

Effortlessly elegant with light green and white foliage, this compact Dogwood redefines beauty in a flowering tree. Its compact size and year-round visual interest elevate the instantly classic Touch of Elegance™ Dogwood Shrub.

Small, creamy-white blooms in late spring lend an ethereal touch to its eye-catching silhouette. These light and lovely florals burst forth after new, pink-hued growth and give way to yellow fall foliage with brilliant red stems during the winter. Vivid, vivacious, vibrant – this Dogwood is one-of-a-kind.

Even better? It’s excellent for mass plantings since it grows to approximately 3 to 4 feet in both height and width. The Touch of Elegance™ is a well-curated choice for upgrading your garden, side yard and every landscape location in-between.

Plus, with a moderate growth rate, this Dogwood shrub has plenty of time to acclimate to your home’s environment – it fits right in, growing with ease in any partially sunny locale.

The Touch of Elegance™ Dogwood: lush and undeniably luxuriant. And not only is it totally timeless, but it’s also easy to maintain. Is there anything better than a plant that dazzles, without hassle? Order your own Touch of Elegance™ Dogwood for instant curb appeal and more!

Planting & Care

Year-round interest is just a click away. With the Touch of Elegance™ Dogwood, it’s easy to upgrade your landscape. Lush foliage juxtaposed against the most elegant elements of each season – the Touch of Elegance™ redefines botanical beauty.


Start by finding an area around your home that is partially sunny for best results.

For new plantings, dig a hole one and a half times wider than your Dogwood’s shipped container. Place your plant in the hole, ensuring that you keep the top of the root ball at ground level. Then, back fill your new hole with dirt.

After planting, water your Dogwood thoroughly and mulch around its base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds.


To encourage proper growth, water your new Dogwood plantings more frequently – newly-planted trees require more watering than established items. Wind, temperature and soil are also factors to consider in watering.

If you’re not sure when to water, simply feel the soil near your tree, down to about a depth of 1 inch. If it feels dry, it’s time to water. At that point, you should soak the soil around the roots thoroughly but avoid overwatering, as too much moisture can lead to root rot.


Fertilizing is simple and straight-forward for the Touch of Elegance™ Dogwood. Feed your new plants during early spring and again in the early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.
