Want to add a burst of color with early spring flowering trees? Dogwood trees would be a great choice! We have two choices to pick from and they both would be gorgeous!
The pink dogwood and white dogwood are equally as beautiful and very similar in nature. The White Dogwood tree gets slightly taller. The green foliage stays bright green throughout spring and summer before the leaves drop in winter.
The large, colorful blossoms have 4 petals and produce a showy display in the spring. The flowers can last until the summer on these deciduous trees.
Dogwoods, aka Cornus florida, are disease and pest resistant and will live happily in a variety of soils. Adaptable to many climates and fast growing in nature! These fast growing trees are native to the United States and can be seen growing wild in many states and settings.
Dogwoods can handle full sun or partial shade. They are low maintenance and cold hardy down to USDA zone 5. These early spring blooming trees are planted in many places. They are one of the most commonly planted small trees in the US.
