This beautiful flowering White Dogwood was picked as Missouri’s state tree and is one of the most specatcular of the native American flowering trees on the market.
This flowering deciduous tree is a small, deciduous variety that typically grows 15-30 feet tall and 15-25 feet wide. It has low-branching, broadly pyramidal but flat-topped growth habit. The growth rate of the tree is slow to moderate growing about 1 foot per year.
The flowering dogwood will bloom in early spring with an overlapping bloom period of the redbud trees. The dark green foliage will provide year round interest if planted in full sun to partial shade.
In the fall, the flowers will turn into dark red berries and bright red fruit for wildlife including deer, birds, and squirrels. The foliage also turns a deep purple red to signify the fall season.
The dogwood flowers are tiny, yellowish green and shapes like dainty button-like clusters. Each flower cluster has four showy, white, petal-like leaves which open flat. This gives the appearance of a single, four-petaled, white flower. The reddish-brown wood is extremely hard, perfect to make handles for tools.
Plant this Dogwood Cornus Florida tree in acidic soil that is well drained for best results. This tree grows in drought tolerant areas but be sure to water thoroughly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. A 2-3 inch layer of organic material or mulch will help to retain moisture.
