Spring flowering dates may vary from year to year depending on local temperatures where the
dogwood tree is growing. However, the sequence for flowering dates expected with individual
dogwood varieties should be similar each year.
During the first two to three months after planting your dogwood recommend watering the root
zone thoroughly two to three times per week. After establishment dogwoods only require
supplemental watering during extended periods of no or limited rainfall. With long periods - thirty
days or more - of drought suggest watering dogwoods once a week, providing sufficient water to re
wet the root zone during each watering.
