White Flowering Dogwood
One of America's most loved trees, the dogwood, took third place in a contest sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation to select America's National Tree. Only the mighty oak and the redwood tree were able to best the dogwood in popularity.
Two of our Founding Fathers fanned the flame of love for the dogwood by planting the tree at their historical homeplaces. George Washington transplanted dogwoods from the forest to the grounds surrounding his Mt. Vernon Estate.
In the late 1770s, Thomas Jefferson planted dogwood trees at Monticello, perhaps leading to the choice of the American dogwood as Virginia's state flower in 1918. Today, the dogwood is the state tree of Virginia, Missouri, and North Carolina.
The White Flowering Dogwood (genus Cornus Florida) has a unique beauty for all seasons. White flowers bloom in early spring, with summer's green foliage turning to a purplish-red in autumn. In winter, the tree's red fruits attract songbirds who come to feast and spread the seeds.
White flowering dogwood trees typically reach a height of 10 to 25 feet with a 6-12 inch trunk diameter.
Dogwoods have a fast growth rate, gaining more than a foot of height each year. A newly planted dogwood tree will achieve its full height in approximately a decade.
The ornamental beauty of white flowering dogwood trees makes them a great choice to plant near patios, close to larger buildings, and in any residential or public area. Growing alongside pink or red dogwoods, they make a spectacular display.
