Pink dogwood is an eye-catcher in yard landscaping and is also named the Cherokee Princess, a flowering tree in the Cornaceae family. Its delicate pink flowering bracts cover the tree branches in the springtime once it reaches maturity.
In full bloom, the Cornus florida species with shrubs and herbaceous plants group well with different maple trees species making the landscape more attractive. Decoratively, the ornamental tree uses include landscapes, street plantings, and gardens for patios, lawns, or shrub borders.
In 1731, the this tree was cultivated first in Kentucky with native range to Florida, Oklahoma, Mexico, Massachusetts, and Texas. J.C. Higdens from Mayfield, Kentucky, introduced this tree as one of the best of all its species cultivars. Large numbers of shrubs, such as the alternate leaf Cornus alternifolia with a commercial range, are found with sugar maple trees because of their “varied altitudinal distribution.” Grouped with the beech-maple tree are understory trees, shrubs, and herbaceous that supply nectar and pollen sources for pollinators throughout the growing season.
As with the maple trees, these trees strive in sunlight, soil, and moisture conditions for healthy growth. When considering grouping trees, analyze the significant elements before selecting maple or these trees. Both trees are found on slopes, swamps, flood plains, and historical-field communities and grow in moist, well-drained soils.
This tree makes landscapes more attractive when grouping among the maple trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, and other understory trees. Its growth expectation is at a medium rate of 13 to 24 inches per year after planting in yards from the nursery. Its large pink bracts set the tree apart from other Cornus florida species. Add mulch to keep the roots cool and moisture in the summer when the temperature is usually high or during a drought.

I have this ordered this morning. Need to grow more of this variety to have it lined up in my front yard.

The saplings were well packaged and ready to plant so we found good places for them situated among some white dogwoods and redbuds in the yard. Looking forward to flowers.
