#ProPlantTips for Care:Great in a sunny or semi-shady spot in your yard, Dogwood Trees are easy to care for and cold hardy and aren’t particular on soil type, but they really should be planted in moist, acidic well-drained soil. Once established, they can tolerate some drought, but to best protect your investment, provide supplemental watering. Tolerating slightly acidic soils, use appropriate organic fertilizers that help maintain this acidity and boost their health in early spring. Mulch the root system well to insulate from heat and cold, as well as hold in more moisture and water less often!
Prune if necessary in late winter to control size or shape, or after flowering to remove crossing branches and water growth. Low maintenance and very easy to care for once established. Dogwoods are naturally very pest resistant, disease-resistant, and drought-tolerant!
