Full Retail Price: $195 (Why the difference?)
A hybrid of the Pacific Northwest native dogwood, Cornus nuttallii (Pacific Dogwood), and Cornus florida (Florida Dogwood). It grows taller and has larger flowers than those of the better-known Florida Dogwood.
This hybrid is easier to grow, more resistant to anthracnose, and generally more adaptable than its PNW parent, the Pacific Dogwood.
A great street tree for planting strips with overhead primary power lines.
25' at maturity
20' at maturity
Big, beautiful white flowers grow to more than four inches in diameter in the spring.
Dark green summer foliage is handsome throughout the summer months, and turns to rich red in the fall.
NOTE BEFORE PLANTING: Dogwoods are very popular trees, but they are considered overplanted in many areas, and they are often planted in unsuitable locations where they are susceptible to leaf scorch, curling, and stunted growth. In the wild dogwoods are commonly found as understory trees. Many dogwoods are not particularly drought- or heat-tolerant, requiring irrigation during drought periods in summer. If your site is hot, dry and sunny in the summer, please consider planting an alternative tree that can thrive there.
