    Why plant Audubon® Native White Flowering Dogwood Treeling?

    This is a tree you’ll want to have right outside your window! Flowering Dogwood puts on several performances throughout the year, and you’ll want a front-row seat for all of them. In spring, big blossoms crowd the branches like flocks of white butterflies. In early fall, the foliage turns smoldering shades of purple and red. But from late summer until well into winter, that’s when the real show happens if you’re a fan of backyard birds. Bluebirds, robins, cardinals, Cedar Waxwings, grosbeaks, mockingbirds, and Blue Jays are some of the many birds that come to feast on Flowering Dogwood’s glossy red fruits.

    Arguably the most spectacular of our country’s flowering trees, Flowering Dogwood is a national treasure. All who encounter it can’t help but fall in love with it! It is the state tree of Virginia and Missouri and the state flower of North Carolina. Thomas Jefferson was a fan, and he planted many specimens at Monticello, as did George Washington at Mt. Vernon. In those days, Flowering Dogwood was valued not only for its beauty but also for the supposed efficacy of its bark and roots in a treatment for malaria. Its native range extends from Massachusetts to Florida and west to southern Michigan and East Texas.

    How to use Audubon® Native White Flowering Dogwood Treeling in the landscape?

    Like so many of our native plants, Flowering Dogwood is a host to many caterpillars and other insects that our local songbirds depend on for nourishment. Bugs are not all bad! Even before the fruits are present, Flowering Dogwood will attract birds to your yard who are looking for a meal.

    What is the definition of Native?

    “In the United States, a native plant is defined as one that was naturally found in a particular area before European colonization. Native plants are the foundation of a region’s biodiversity, providing essential food sources and shelter for birds, especially those threatened by the changing climate. Since native plants are adapted to local precipitation and soil conditions, they generally require less upkeep, therefore helping the environment and saving you time, water, and money.” – The National Audubon Society

    How To Plant Audubon® Native White Flowering Dogwood Treeling

    Flowering Dogwoods are vulnerable to a few troublesome pests and diseases, including anthracnose, borers, and powdery mildew. However, proper siting and culture will give your tree a good chance for a long, healthy life. Site your tree in an area with morning sun and good air circulation, and don’t use overhead sprinklers. Water regularly and feed with the Bower & Branch™ Elements Fertilizer and Soil Enhancer. Be careful to never gouge the bark, as wounds can create an entry point for pests or disease, and prune out any dead branches and dispose of them—do not compost them. Check out our Homeowner’s Guide to Dogwood Diseases and Care for more details, and please do not hesitate to talk to us directly at grower@bowerandbranch.com about any other questions you have concerning Dogwood care.

    How To Water

    Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

    How To Fertilize

    Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

    How To Prune

    A young tree may need a little extra support to ensure that it lives a long and healthy life. Stake your new Treeling with a 6-8 foot tall wood or bamboo stake. Use expandable ties that will stretch as the tree grows, fastening the stake to the main trunk from the base to the top. Check the ties every few months, at least twice a year; ensuring the ties are not digging into the trunk. If there is any sign of this, take the tie off and reattach it, giving the tree more room to grow.

    As your tree grows, remove a few of the lower branches each year in late winter if you do not want your tree to have lower limbs. Remove these lower branches before they reach 1/2 inch in diameter. It is better to make small cuts to avoid cutting a large, more mature branch - this is too stressful for the tree. Each year, make any corrective pruning needed, paying particular attention to removing damaged branches, rubbing branches, multiple leaders at the top, or suckers at the base. Limit any pruning to no more than 25% of the branching structure in a given year. Pruning benefits the tree and helps to achieve a balanced tree form.

    After two or three years you can feel free to remove the stake from the tree.

    How Does Shipping Work?

    Size Small (AAA), Medium (A2A), and Large (AA) plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.

    How Does Sizing Work?

    The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

    Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

    All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
