The white flowering dogwood tree is known for gracing landscapes with its sculptural branches and white creamy color.
This tree is prized for the spring bloom and pleasing shape. It adapts well across hardiness zones and produces seasonal colors.
This delicate looking tree is easy to care for and grows happily in partial or full sun. It’s an ideal choice for bird-friendly gardens and does well standing alone or in a grouping. Popular locations for planting this beautiful tree are near the patio or alongside a woodland planting that receives a lot of sun.
The blooms are small yellow flowers that are surrounded by leaf bracts. Each branch produces hundreds of unique blossoms. The snowy white bracts are the most common but on occasion, the bloom can become a variety of colors including pink or red.
During the fall season, the green foliage turns red and looks exquisite. By this time, the small delicate flowers develop into scarlet berries that attract songbirds.
During winter, the tree reveals textured bark and branch structure. The tree has horizontal growth located on the lower half while the top half has upright branching. The combination of the upper and lower halves create a flowing shape that is great to look at during the long winter months.
The white flowering dogwood is ideal for landscapes, homes, businesses, and natural habitats.
It adds color and grace to a variety of landscape designs as well as looks great standing alone. This tree is a great option for planting outside of windows to create beautiful scenery that can be seen from the indoors.
