White Dogwood

 
 

The White Dogwood is the queen of native flowering trees with a four-season interest. The White Flowering Dogwood, Cornus Florida, is the ”aristocrat” of flowering trees because it is breathtakingly beautiful with its white blossoms.

The White Dogwood has an excellent show of white blossoms in spring, and bright red berries in fall and winter. The White Dogwood is a low branching tree that spreads horizontally and has a semi-rounded top.

The White Dogwood is one of the showiest native trees. The flowers unfold from the round, conspicuous, gray winter flower buds before the leaves come out. The white or pink flower bracts are showy and often thought to be the petals of the flower. They open in May.

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.
