|Thuja Gardens - Potted Grafted Flowering Dogwood Trees
Among all flowering trees the dogwood is regarded by most of America as unrivaled in beauty. It grows 15 to 25 feet in
height and is generally wider than tall. This deciduous ornamental tree offers landscape interest for all seasons, beginning
with its floral display in late March to early June that last 2 to 4 weeks followed by deep, green foliage held on layered
branches in the summer. With fall comes a brilliant show of scarlet to reddish purple foliage and bright red fruit borne in small
clusters. The fruit often lasts into December or until it is devoured by birds. The interesting bark texture and branches help
create an excellent winter silhouette.
Dogwoods make excellent understory trees in a semi-shaded area and can be used in foundation plantings. They are often
used as a backdrop for rhododendrons, azaleas, or other spring-flowering shrubs. Dogwoods are excellent for specimen or
accent plantings around the terrace or patio.
|Dogwoods are one of America's most popular ornamental flowering trees!
