Double, pure-white blooms, Some small trees just bring a lot of “oomph” to the landscape, and the Appalachian Joy Dogwood (Cornus florida ‘Appalachian Joy’) is certainly one of the best. Supernumerary bracts surround the tiny flowers in the center of each flower!
That means instead of four large “petals”, you get eight large “petals” on the blossoms. This outstanding display is held aloft above the branches, as well. Appalachian Joy is an extremely showy white-flowering Dogwood tree. It has an upright branching habit and a very compact form that fits even in courtyards or small lots!
You’ll have to see the amazing springtime bloom to believe it! Cut long branches for memorable indoor arrangements. The highly ornamental blooms last a long time as a valuable early nectar resource. Butterflies will appreciate the flat bracts that surround the tiny true flowers located in the eye of the bloom.
This tree delivers joy in all seasons. The blissfully mildew-resistant, fine-textured foliage is dark green for summer shade. In fall, the foliage brightens with incredible, multi-hued fall color. You’ll see harvest gold, blaze orange, bold reds, and deep purples – all on the same tree.
By this time, spring’s flowers have developed into red fruits. Look fast to see them, as they’ll be snapped up quickly by hungry songbirds. These petite trees offer incredible wildlife value for local pollinators and songbirds!
Lastly, the attractive, textured gray bark adds winter interest. You’ll love noticing how the first light snowfall frosts the graceful branches! Winter hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9, Appalachian grows to a rounded form that’s 15-20 feet tall and wide!
Planting and Application:There are many places to feature these wonderful specimen trees! This is a tree to be widely admired and deserving of a high-profile location in your landscape! Use it in a high-traffic area near an entryway to make your visitors smile coming and going! Add one at the corner of your home to anchor your foundation planting. Or, use an informal grouping on a berm planting in your front lawn that birds and wildlife flock to.
If you love Dogwoods (and who doesn’t?) create a personal collection of them in your side yard or to define the sunny edge of a woodland in your backyard. You might strongly consider making Appalachian Joy one of the “stars” of your collection. Take this idea, and add a single Appalachian Joy to a created grouping of species White-Flowering Dogwoods from Nature Hills. You’ll love the subtle contrast between the floral forms. Mix in some pinks and reds for a spectacular display!
Frankly, you could host an annual “Welcome Spring” get-together when your tree bursts into blossom. Place a pair of swinging hammocks, or outdoor Adirondack chairs in its dappled shade. This might become your favorite destination spot! There may not be anything prettier to add to the side of a pond. Site them so you can study the reflections from your outdoor seating area. Bring privacy and peaceful beauty to your outdoor garden rooms, Moon Gardens, and seating areas!

#ProPlantTips for Care:Give Appalachian Joy Dogwood trees morning sun and afternoon shade in the hottest summers. They’ll flower best with at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. These trees prefer well-drained soil that is slightly acidic, topped with a 3-4 inch thick layer of pine bark mulch or pine straw over their root systems. The mulch will break down to support the soil acidity. Provide a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Baby young trees in their first season, as they may need more frequent watering. Protect your investment with careful watering during periods of high heat or drought.
Study your tree in late winter to develop any pruning plan that may be needed when dormant. Remove crossing branches once flowering is past…or cut them to enjoy their intricate blooms in tall vases indoors! Opening the canopy for sunlight penetration and air circulation.
