The white dogwood is an American classic, which has long been part of our native landscape. These trees range from north to south, from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific Ocean and are one of the most renowned of our 100% North American cultivars.
The white dogwood is a special tree, because it rewards the gardener all year. As the days lengthen and warm, stark white blooms cover the tree and announce the arrival of spring. When summer arrives the upward branching and deep green textured leaves provide an elegant and graceful appearance among larger straighter shade trees, evergreens, or the sharp geometry of your home. Swirling scarlet and purple leaves add to the color show in the fall, along with brilliant red berries that attract up to 36 species of songbird through the early winter.
This breathtakingly beautiful tree is an excellent choice to plant along streets, near large buildings, next to patios or as a property border. It provides an eye-catching display when planted in rows, but also excels as a solo planting, or among towering giants. Dogwoods do best in some shade and rich soil, but can adapt to a variety of conditions with proper care.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
We bought this to plant in memory of our dog who recently passed away unexpectedly. It really helped my kids grieve in a healthy way and the leaves are budding.
We drove to pick up and ended up leaving with a bigger tree. Its been planted for about 2 to 3 weeks now and is doing great! The hospitality was awesome and such a beautiful place! Appreciate all the extra steps New Blooms took to ensure my tree was secure. Thanks guys!
The white flowering dogwood came well packed. It liked very healthy. I planted it right away and mulched, mulched,mulched. It is leafing out great.
I bought this Dogwood as part of a living memorial. It is the most beautiful tree I have ever purchased from a nursery. It is strong, healthy, and has so many buds already forming. I appreciated New Bloom's instructions and how-to-plant video on their Care page. I cannot imagine a more perfect tree to commemorate my loved one. Every time I look at it, it fills me with joy. This nursery has made me a lifelong customer. I'll be back for another tree, I'm sure. Thank you, New Blooms!
The trees arrived well-packed - a white and a pink dogwood about 18" tall. I planted them right away. The weather was cold so they didn't come out into leaf until now, the first of May. I think they will be beautiful trees once they grow for a few seasons.
