Many people are not aware of how many options there are when it comes to variety of dogwoods. There are hundreds of cultivars, and we try our best to select the best from each category that will perform well in zone 8. Dogwoods make small, yet stunning specimen trees, and are a staple in the landscape. They prefer well drained soil, rich in organic matter, and slightly acidic. Dogwoods are natural under-story trees, and perform better through filtered sun; although many will adapt to a full sun location if given proper care.
Cloud Nine- This is a very prolific selection of dogwood with showy, white, spring blooms of overlapping petals; glossy dark green foliage in summer; reddish purple leaves in fall; and red berries holding on in the start of winter, giving interest every season. They grow to an average of 15-20ft tall, and tend to have a short trunk with many horizontal branches giving them a moderate globed shape.
