Product Details

The White Flowering Dogwood is one of the most popular flowering trees in America.  When this tree blossoms you know that spring has sprung!

Dogwood Trees are known for the beautiful, spring blossoms.  Each flower emerges a creamy white.  This classic and recognizable bloom is what makes this flowering dogwood so popular.  With a mature height and width of 20-25 feet, be sure you have enough space for this Dogwood Tree.  Blossoms arrive in spring and generally last about one month.  As the blossoms begin to fall, lush green leaves will fill out your tree and add softness to your landscape.  In the fall, enjoy the transition from green to crimson red as this tree prepares for winter.  Dogwoods have a low branch structure compared to other trees.  Plant your White Flowering Dogwood in partial shade with rich well drained soil.

Planting & Care

How to Plant & Care for Your new White Dogwood Tree

When planting your Dogwood be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive.  Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant.  However, if you avoid freezing and hot temperatures you can plant almost any time of the year.  

These trees tolerate full sun, part sun, and part shade and prefer soil that is well-drained, acidic, and nutrient rich. If you have alkaline soil, you can amend your soil.  To acidify your soil, amend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants.  Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution for increasing acidity.  Mulching will also aid in keeping the shallow roots cool and moist.  Add a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch.  Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.  Dogwoods should be watered often enough that the soil does not dry completely, but is not saturated.  Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost.  Choose a slow release fertilizer for acid loving plants.  When planting take care not to burn the roots by mixing the fertilizer into the soil before placing your tree in the hole.  Dogwoods don't generally require pruning, but if needed prune when they are dormant to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering and fertilization are the keys to your success.  Avoid problems with Dogwood Borer insects by ensuring your tree remains free from damage, especially from lawn equipment.  Mulching helps to keep weeds at bay which eliminates the need to use lawn equipment near your tree  Borers look for a hole or weak spot to penetrate.  Scale is an immobile insect that can affect Dogwoods.  You can treat this pest with horticultural oil. Be sure to coat the entire tree.  Powdery Mildew can be a problem in Dogwoods.  When this disease occurs in late summer it isn't likely to cause any problems for your tree.  Simply remove and discard the affected leaves when your tree sheds them.  When Powdery Mildew occurs earlier in Spring, you can treat with a copper fungicide to control the spread of this disease.  Spot Anthracnose is a common fungus of Dogwoods.  This is often seen in extremely wet seasons.  This disease is cosmetic and will not affect the overall health of your tree.  If you have a problem with any fungal issues year after year, treat with a copper fungicide in early spring to prevent infection.  Dogwood's branches that are crowded likely lack air flow and can greatly increase your risk of fungal issues.  Thin out the branches when your tree is dormant to increase air flow.  

Landscaping Ideas

Landscape Ideas for your White Dogwood Tree

If you have any natural areas around your property, plant your White Dogwood off to the side making it stand out.  Hostas are a great addition to your Dogwood because they will do great planted in large clusters underneath.  The shade from your White Dogwood will be just perfect for the hosta.  

Try adding a Pink Dogwood or 2  in with your White Dogwoods for a subtle mix.  Want even more color?  Add in azaleas, burning bushes, forsythia, etc. You will have a wonderful colorful display throughout the year.  Picture looking out your window and seeing the pink blossoms flutter in the breeze.  

Now, picture it at night lit up from underneath... It makes a perfect specimen tree even at night!

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

I can't stop ordering from them!
Everything I order and receive from the planting tree continues to overwhelm me. I am very familiar with other sites and this one has it going on. It's refreshing to feel as if I'm not getting duped. My dogwood tree is a blessing.
