Dogwoods arguably may be the most beautiful of the native American flowering trees. Distinguished by a "cloud-like" profusion of large creamy white flowers 4 to 5 inches in diameter, the Cloud 9 Dogwood is sure to capture the attention and hearts of all who gaze upon it. When in full bloom, its broad rounded crown covered in white appears like a "cloud" in the landscape. Oval, dark green leaves up to 6 inches long follow the bloom and turn outstanding shades of red to purple-red with the arrival of cooler temperatures in fall. Bright red fruits mature in late summer to early fall and may persist until late in the year. The fruits are bitter and inedible to humans but are showy and loved by birds. Very low maintenance and with high resistance to pests, diseases, deer, and cold temperatures to -20F, the Cloud 9 Dogwood is an excellent specimen in partially shaded to shady woodland borders and around patios and other other outdoor living spaces.
