White or flower bracts bloom on bare branches. A small tree that is classically beautiful. At it's best in spring whilst it is blooming and again in autumn when the foliage is on show. As these are seedlings, the bract colour is variable.
The foliage is mid green and turns red in autumn. The bark is brown grey with a light texture.
Grow Flowering Dogwood in moderately fertile to humus rich soil. Acid soil is preferred. Keep moist whilst establishing and then water only when rainfall is low. It is a good idea to add some fertiliser whilst the tree is establishing, in spring or autumn. Add some mulch in summer to protect the growing roots. Choose a full sun to part shade position.
The growth rate is moderate, reaching its 8m in around 20 years.
