The Story

Flowering Dogwood is a shining star of our eastern forests and woodland edges and has been cherished in this country for centuries. Cloud Nine is a special selection of this treasured native that was introduced in the early 1960sA man named Henry Chase discovered it on his nursery near Huntsville, Alabama and admired it for its impressive and precocious flower production. Over the years, Cloud Nine has shown itself to be not just a prolific bloomer, but an all-around good “doergrowers’ lingo for plants that perform especially well without a lot of fuss. It has also proven to be one of the most cold-hardy selections around, despite its southern origins.

The Details

The true flowers of a Flowering Dogwood are actually the tiny yellow blooms clustered together in the center of the inflorescence. The four “petals” are actually enlarged bracts, like the red bracts on a poinsettia plant.

How to Grow

Flowering Dogwoods are vulnerable to a few troublesome pests and diseases, including anthracnose, borers, and powdery mildew. However, proper siting and culture will give your tree a good chance for a long, healthy life. Site your Cloud Nine Dogwood in an area with morning sun and good air circulation, and don’t use overhead sprinklers. Water regularly and feed with the Bower & Branch™ Elements Fertilizer and Soil Enhancer. Be careful to never gouge the bark, as wounds can create an entry point for pests or disease, and prune out any dead branches and dispose of themdo not compost them. Check out our Homeowner’s Guide to Dogwood Diseases and Care for more details, and please do not hesitate to talk to us directly at grower@bowerandbranch.com about any other questions you have concerning Dogwood care.
