Description

Enjoy the most abundant bounty of snow white blooms with our White Dogwood Tree! The White Dogwood is the most popular native tree in America. We carry the very best variety for the most cherished feature, the early spring blooms. If you are looking for a tree literally coated with blooms look no further!

The White Dogwood is one of the very first plants to bloom. Nothing says warm weather is on its way quite like a Dogwood tree bursting with blossoms. As the winter chill fades away, green leaves emerge, filling your tree with a lush texture and rich color. In fall, this attractive foliage transitions to a ruby red that is a sight to see. As the weather cools, lovely, red berries form and last from fall through winter. These shiny, red berries add color and interest and attract songbirds and wildlife. Be sure to plant your Dogwood in view of the window near your coziest chair so you can enjoy all this showy tree has to offer!

These trees grow in full sun to part shade and are adaptable to most well-draining neutral to acidic soils, including clay. Once established this variety is drought tolerant, but will grow and bloom best when the soil is watered when it is dry. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer like the one we carry here. Dogwoods do not generally require pruning, but if needed prune when they are dormant to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

How To Care

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. Dogwoods are deer tolerant and can be considered the perfect flowering tree for zone 5zone 6zone 7zone 8, or zone 9.

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.

Landscape Ideas

At only 20-30 feet tall and wide at maturity the White Dogwood is a good fit for many locations in your yard. If you have any natural areas around your property, plant your dogwood off to the side to make it really stand out. Hostas are a perfect complement to your dogwood tree because these shade loving perennials perform well planted in large clusters underneath. Try adding a Pink or Red Dogwood or two in with your Whites for a pretty, but subtle difference. You will love looking out your window and seeing your dogwood blossoms flutter in the breeze. Looking for more more color? Add in azaleas, burning bushes, forsythia, abelia etc. You will have a brilliant display throughout the year. The White Dogwood even makes a perfect specimen tree at night; simply add an uplight to show your tree off after dark.

white dogwood tree

the white dogwood tree arrived on 09/12/20 with leaves drooping a little bit. We planted the tree per the instructions on 09/14/20. It's now 09/17/20 and leaves are still bit drooping. Hopefully the leaves will totally perk up soon. the tree arrived with some buds showing, so that made us excited. hoping that the tree will grow to its full potential.

purchased gift

Gifting of a white dogwood is our family's tradition of sending flowers when someone loses a loved one. This particular order was for a neighbor who recently lost her father. This was our first, but definitely not the last order we will place with Planting Tree.Ordering was easy, shipping was prompt, packaging was excellent, as plant was very well protected and was unharmed in shipping. The quality of the planting was excellent. The prices were great. Will be looking for products for my own yard and no longer purchasing inferior products at those "Big Box" retailers.
