 Flowering & Foliage Minimize

Dogwoods are usually found in the shrub border to add color or as a specimen in the lawn. It can also be grown as an “under story” tree underneath of other large trees. Dogwoods prefer a rich, deep, well-drained soil and are not recommended for heavy, wet soils. The fruits that are produced are a favorite of many birds as well as squirrels, rabbits and raccoons. The trees can also serve as butterfly nectar sources and as hosts for butterfly larvae.
