Garden Glow Dogwood

Cornus hesseyii 'Garden Glow'

The color on this dogwood will blow your little socks right off! Vivid chartreuse yellow leaves pop in the summer, complimented by dainty white flowers through the season. Foliage then gets festive for the fall, turning an autumnal burgundy red. But wait; there’s more! Foliage drops in the winter, revealing gorgeous red twigs, perfect for use in flower arrangements or just to add a little color to normally bland winter landscapes. What more could this dogwood possibly do for you?!

Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

For new plantings, dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container; place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level; and back fill with dirt. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering. Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.
