Description

 White Dogwood Tree is one of America's Most Recognized Tree

If you live on the American east coast, the chances are that you have seen the dazzling sight of a tree thickly blanketed with white blooms in spring. This white dogwood tree, whose history and attributes make it one of America's most recognizable and beloved trees. 

 Where does it thrive?

 The white dogwood is native to the Eastern United States and has been a resident since 1731. George Washington adorned the grounds of Mount Vernon with it. 

 It thrives in well-watered soil that is rich in organic nutrients. It is best suited for regions that experience at least a moderate amount of rainfall rather than arid areas, where it will need to be frequently irrigated. It prefers slightly acidic soil, loam, and clay. 

 The tree grows best in the partial or dappled shade of a larger tree. But it requires at least four hours of direct sunlight. Partial shade is important because prolonged exposure to harsh sunlight can dry out its shallow roots. It can be planted near oak, tulip poplar, or witch hazel. 

White Dogwood Trees Grow best in Partial or Dappled Shade of Larger Trees

What are its attributes?

 The white dogwood exudes a different kind of beauty in each season. It is engulfed in a cloud of white blossoms in the spring, which are leaf-like bracts surrounding each flower. In the summer, its bright green foliage develops pretty white or yellow patterns. In the fall, it is aflame with purple-red leaves and yields scarlet berries, on which birds can feast. In the winter, its bark and bare branches assume a gnarled and wizened look. 

 It can grow up to a height of 25 feet and spread to the same breadth. Its height increases at a rate of 13 - 24 inches a year. 

 It requires minimal pruning. Dead branches should be culled in winter, and light pruning is needed to maintain its rounded shape. 

 The dogwood also comes in pink and red varieties. The white dogwood can be planted next to them or with evergreen trees to create a nice contrast. 

 What are its benefits?

 Its practical value matches the splendor of the white dogwood tree. It provides nutrition to a wide range of fauna. Its foliage is consumed by several mammals like deer, rabbits, chipmunks, foxes, beaver, and black bears. Its bright red fruit provides sustenance to various birds like wild turkey, grouse, quail, and thirty-three others. 

 Its bark possesses medicinal value. Native Americans used to brew tea from it. During the Civil War, it was used as a substitute when quinine was in scarce supply. The tannin-rich bark is a natural remedy for mild disorders like aches and pains, dizziness, and fever. It was also used to treat types of internal bleeding. 

 It owes its name that daggers were fashioned from its tough, unyielding bark during medieval times. It came to be known as "dagwood," which led to the derivative "dogwood." It is also used as a material in weavers' looms, tools like chisels, and golf clubs' heads.
