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.

I planted it after it arrived and lucked out with a few days of rain afterwards. Already sprouting leaves.
A nicely shaped tree….
Packaging was great so tree wasn’t damaged.
Can’t wait to see how fast it will grow.
White Flowering Dogwood
The weather in Florida has been conducive to planting new trees. The dogwood tree arrived larger than I had anticipated (very happy). I planted it and have been watering it every day (not much rain in Florida lately) and it's coming to life. Tiny buds for foilage are starting to appear and the "limbs" are turning green. I grew up with dogwood trees in my yard as a child and am very excited about this little beauty turning into a strong and beautiful tree.
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.
