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 white dogwood tree grows well as an ornamental tree in hardiness zones 5-9.
Blossoms of white flowers blanket the tree in spring and into early summer. Glossy green leaves that are oval cover the tree in summer, then turn a vibrant red-purple in autumn before falling to the ground, and in winter, the tree bears small red berries that attract winter birds.
The white dogwood tree grows 13-24 inches in a year and can produce upwards to 10-25 feet tall.
It takes about a decade from the time it was planted to reach its full height. The tree favors nutrient-rich, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic and grows well in sandy, loamy, or clay soils.
Planting time is in the spring while the earth is moist and before tree growth starts. It is advised to keep the soil moist and water the tree often until its roots are established. The tree should then be watered regularly during hot, dry weather, and mulch can be added around the tree's base to keep moister from leaving the ground.
If mulch is used, it must be pulled back a few inches from the tree's trunk to prevent the wood from rotting or the roots from suffocating. White dogwood trees grow naturally in a rounded shape and require very little pruning, but if needed, pruning is done in the fall or winter while the tree is dormant.
