Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

The Dogwood tree is a beautiful sight to behold, with over 50 species found within the Dogwood genus.
Our Dogwood Trees will adapt well in most areas of the country, provided they have plenty of sunshine and water. Some varieties, such as the Flowering Dogwood, produce red berries that many birds love to eat. While these berries are not poisonous to humans, they are unpalatable. The magnificent blooms are quite the sight to see, especially when the tree has reached full maturity.
Flowering dogwoods are hardy in USDA zones 3 through 9.
You can expect our Dogwood trees to bloom in the early spring, usually in April and May. The beautiful pink, red, or white flowers show up before the leaves of the tree emerge. Some cultivators bloom with entirely pink blossoms, while others are only tinged with pink. Our Dogwood trees can range from 15 to 20-feet tall for trees planted in the sun at maturity. Trees planted in the shade can reach 40-feet tall at maturity. The spread of the Dogwood tree is often more extensive than the height.
Dogwood trees will grow best if planted in an acidic to neutral soil. The pH scale should fall between 5.5 to 7.0 for the best growth of the tree. Dogwood trees can be grown in both sun and shade. However, trees that have been planted in partial shade will generally produce better. Dogwoods planted in full sun are susceptible to heat stress and dogwood borers, a destructive type of moth attracted to Dogwood trees. The Dogwood tree has shallow roots that can dry out if not watered properly, so watering should occur at least twice a week or more. Removing broken or dead branches in the colder weather is all the pruning that needs to be done.
