Why plant Snow Tower Japanese Dogwood Treeling?
Small, narrow, upright flowering trees that are beautiful year-round are not so easy to come by, but Snow Tower Japanese Dogwood ticks all the boxes. This perky, compact charmer makes a fine choice for narrow borders and tight spaces. You could also use it as a street tree under utility lines. Wherever it goes, you’ll want it on full display. The large white flowers—as much as seven inches across—make a big splash in late spring and early summer, and the foliage is sensational when it turns scarlet-red in fall. Pretty, exfoliating bark rounds out its all-season appeal.
The popular American Flowering Dogwood blooms in mid-spring, before the leaves emerge. When it finishes flowering a few weeks later, Dogwood season in our gardens isn’t over! That’s when the Japanese, or Kousa, Dogwood picks up the baton. This impressive import unfurls its showy white or pink blossoms in abundance. You can instantly recognize it by its bracts (the “petals”), which are pointed—not notched, like those of Flowering Dogwood. Kousa Dogwood is typically a large shrub or a low-branched, vase-shaped tree, but some quirky nonconformists have popped up over the years. Case in point: the slim-growing Snow Tower, discovered at a nursery in Boring, Oregon.
How to use Snow Tower Japanese Dogwood Treeling in the landscape?
Another cool attribute of Snow Tower Japanese Dogwood is its round, red, strawberry-sized fruits. They hang like ornaments from the branches in early fall. If you split one open, you can sample the pulp inside. It’s sweet and tasty!
Hardiness Zone: 5-8
How To Plant Snow Tower Japanese Dogwood Treeling
Plant Snow Tower Japanese Dogwood in an area of your yard that receives full sun or light shade. It’s not too fussy about soils, but prefers an acid soil and needs good drainage. Water weekly, or better yet, use the Bower & Branch™ Water Element to deliver just the right amount of moisture to your tree throughout the growing season. Unlike many Flowering Dogwood trees, the Japanese Kousa Dogwood is highly resistant to disease—most importantly, the dreaded anthracnose that has threatened so many of our native Dogwoods—so you can rest easy with Snow Tower.
How Does Shipping Work?
Size Small, Medium, and Large 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 4-7 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!
