Dogwood, White Flowering

3 Gallons
  • Pollinator value:  Very high.  Attracts native bees, bumble bees and butterflies, and is a larval host to the Spring Azure butterfly. 

    A favorite in many yards and gardens, this small tree is beautiful in all seasons.  Its white “flowers” bloom March through June, its foliage turns vibrant red-purple in the fall along with colorful glossy fruit, and it has an interesting growth habit that provides winter interest. It is a fine option to plant next to larger buildings, near patios or utility lines, and offers an appealing contrast when planted with larger trees in the background.
