Description

The 'Cloud Nine' dogwood has the appearance of a true cornus florida, but when it blooms it 'turns the dial to 11' to give that extra bit that puts it over the top. It has white blooms on green leaves, but the blooms are larger and more dense. When this tree blooms in the spring it is really a sight to beyond as clusters of huge dogwood blooms weigh down the branches. This tree makes an outstanding spring center piece, but can also be planted in rows, near a house, or among the shade of larger trees. Like all dogwoods it can adapt to full sun and less ideal soil conditions with care, but prefers afternoon shade and moist well drained soil rich in organic matter.
