The White Dogwood tree (Cornus Florida) is a favorite among garden and landscape enthusiasts.
It is a medium-sized tree which reaches about 25 feet in height once fully matured and can have a branch spread of about the same measurement. Growth rates depend on local conditions but can vary from 1-2 feet a year. They take on a pleasant dome shape as they mature. These trees enjoy the full sun for part of the day and rely on the shade for a part as well. They prefer moist soil but can adapt well to acidic, sandy, rich, clay, and other soil types.
Flowering with white or cream-colored flowers (actually leaves that mimic flowers) in the spring, the White Dogwood is a glorious harbinger of all that is wonderful after a long winter. The actual flower within the white leaves produces a small red fruit that birds can feed on. In fact, most parts of the tree, from bark to fruit to leaves to twigs, attract a wide range of wildlife from chipmunks to deer. In the fall the tree then produces another delightful array of purple and red colors as the leaves change for the Autumn. .
Sometimes people will go into the woods to dig up a young White Dogwood tree and then replant it in their yard.
It's better to buy one that is guaranteed healthy and to let the natural environment grow undisturbed. Dogwoods can be planted fairly close to buildings because they don't grow as large as some trees. They do well in terraced areas, on the side of a hill, in a larger landscape arrangement, or by themselves. They are truly versatile and adaptable and require very little care throughout the years. Being an Eastern native, they thrive in climate conditions from Massachusetts to Mississippi.
