When you visit our garden center, you’ll find a nursery full of burlapped and bald trees that can be planted immediately. At our garden center, the trees aren’t restricted by pots so once they take root, they should provide shade within a year.
If you’re looking for a unique gift for your mother this Mother’s Day, you should stop by the Woodlawn Landscaping & Garden Center in Malvern, PA and pick out a dogwood tree, the most beautiful native tree of North America.
Your mother will be able to enjoy this deciduous ornamental tree all year round. The dogwood tree will provide her landscape with an aesthetically pleasing focal point starting in late March when it begins to bloom.
The dogwood tree is commonly known for the explosion of small flower clusters surrounded by four roundish, inch-wide bracts with notched tips that appear in the spring and last for about two to four weeks.
After shedding its flowers, the dogwood will compliment your mother’s existing landscape by offering deep, green foliage throughout the summer. In the fall, your mother will be able to enjoy a brilliant show of scarlet to reddish purple foliage that usually lasts until December.
As you look for a dogwood tree worthy of your special lady, we encourage you to keep the following in mind:
- Early spring is one of the best times to plant a dogwood tree because it will adjust easily
- Flowering dogwood trees flourish in moist, shady areas with nutrient-rich soil
- Planting your dogwood tree in a location that gets morning sun and good air circulation will help it ward off disease
