Flowering Dogwood Trees | Cornus Trees

Small deciduous trees, often wider than they are tall, Flowering Dogwoods are amongst some of the most sought after ornamental trees.

With a choice of flower colours (white or pink); autumn foliage colour (pink, purple, red, orange) and colourful berries, Flowering Dogwood trees create a colourful display with year round interest. Ornamental Trees have a great choice of Flowering Dogwood (Cornus Florida) and Chinese Dogwood (Cornus Kousa) trees that are well suited to small or large gardens.

 

Flowering Dogwoods are best suited to a planting position with morning sun and some afternoon shade. Make sure to generously water young trees, especially in times of drought. Less frequent, generous watering is better than more frequent light watering as the water is more likely to reach the roots and provide the moisture they require.

 

Uses

  • Cornus hard wood has been used for making golf club heads, mallets, tool handles, butcher's blocks and jeweller's boxes.
  • It is the state tree and flower of the U.S state of Virginia.
  • It was used to treat dogs with mange, hence the common name dogwood.
  • The berries are edible, but they don't taste great!
  • The U.S sent 3000 dogwood saplings to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Washington D.C cherry trees that were given to the U.S by Japan in 1912.
  • American Indians planted their crops in conjunction with the flowering of dogwood trees.
  • They also used the roots of dogwood trees to treat malaria.
