Dogwood - PinkCornus florida
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-7
The Pink Dogwood tree makes a breathtaking addition to any yard or landscape all year long! In the springtime this variety produces vibrant pink blooms that darken as the tree matures. However, the beauty of the Dogwood does not stop there. In the fall the Dogwood's green foliage turns a fiery red shade. Beautiful charcoal bark and red fruit compose the winter look of this variety. This fruit is a favorite winter food for many bird species. The Dogwood prefers partial shade and well-drained soil. In addition, this plant also prefers soil that is slightly acidic, which helps with the draining process. The Dogwood grows at a fairly rapid pace, and can reach a mature height from 15-25 feet with a 25 foot spread.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
I have received over 50 plants/ trees/ shrubs from different companies and the and they are all thriving except my pink dogwood, which was my favorite. I just received it July 27, 2020, and it has already died. I reached out to the company and am waiting to hear back.
this was a second order for me. I ordered nearly two dozen trees of various kinds in my first order. The service was excellent and trees arrived timely and in good condition. Some were taller than expected and they are all in the ground. this pink dogwood has a good start from the box it arrived in I expect to order more in the fall.
The pink flowering dogwood was in the box for a week the delivery guy said. The box was pretty torn up so he brought it back to the main office. They sent it to me. The box was pretty battered. The tree had a lot of dead leaves but the branches looked good so I went ahead and planted it. I think it’s doing ok and look forward to next spring. So far so good. I would say it was the shipping that caused distress to the tree.
Love my new tree! Delivered quickly and in amazing condition. Can't wait for it to grow and mature!
