White Dogwood Tree Cornus florida
The Superstar of Flowering TreesOne of the showiest flowering trees native to North America, the White Dogwood is sheer perfection. This is a tree with everything going for it, and with many seasonal surprises in store for its owner.
In May, even before the leaves appear, beautiful white blossoms unfurl from their eye-catching winter sheaths to trumpet the arrival of spring. These flowers dazzle and delight for several weeks.
If you think the splendor is over after spring, just wait until autumn when the White Dogwood's leaves put on another fiery show. Luscious green hues are exchanged for spectacular shades of burgundy, purple and deep crimson.
When the leaves begin to drop, the White Dogwood isn't through with it's grand pageantry. Next, clusters of ruby-red berries pop against the smooth silver bark, offering songbirds and squirrels a favored food source during the cold winter months.
White Dogwoods are small trees, normally growing no taller than 20-30 feet. This makes it perfect to place in smaller gardens or in a tight spot near a patio or deck area.
You can plant this Dogwood singly as a standout specimen up-lit by landscape lighting, or in groupings to really show off the impact of vibrant colors and what this tree has to offer through all seasons.
Plant White Dogwoods with evergreens, such as our Thuja Green Giants, as a backdrop. You'll see a spectacular contrast.
With slightly arched branches that grow in tiers, a full-rounded crown and a relatively short trunk, this tree's shape resembles an umbrella.
White Dogwoods like sun to partial shade, and perform best in well-drained acidic soil with a good dose of fertilizing each season.
With this eye-catching beauty in your yard, you'll be the envy of the neighborhood.

Because this tree is grown in a burlap bag, its roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around the pot. This brings moisture and nutrients into the tree, for faster, healthier growth and ease. Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included), then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!
