The fruit is a bright scarlet, relished by birds, squirrels, and other animals, which often eat the fruit before it colors and matures, usually between September and November.
The White Dogwood makes an excellent specimen tree, near a patio, on corners of houses, or in groupings.
The show of flowers is particularly spectacular when the dogwood is planted in front of evergreens, as the dark green background accentuates the blossoms.
The White Dogwood also looks very nice at the edge of the woods, which is their natural habitat.
Plant the White Dogwood in sun to partial shade in order to maximize its growth and flowering habit.
This deciduous tree does best in well-drained acid soil with sufficient organic matter.
The White Dogwood needs summer water to maintain a moist environment.
