Flowering Dogwood Trees | Cornus Trees

Range of Cornus or Dogwood trees grown predominantly for their pretty flower bracts in shades of bright white through to rich pink. Many varieties also feature brilliant autumn foliage colour and fascinating fruits. The Dogwood shrubs, on the other hand, display brightly coloured winter stems.

Choosing & Growing Dogwood

We have a great choice of Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) and Chinese Dogwood (Cornus kousa) trees that are often wider than they are tall and well suited to small or large gardens. With a choice of flower colours, autumn foliage colour and colourful berries, Flowering Dogwood trees create a colourful display with year round interest. There is also a range of deciduous Dogwood shrubs (Cornus alba, Cornus sanguinea, Cornus sericea) with fantastic stem colours that make a wonderful winter feature in any sized garden.

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.
