Description
 
● Flowering dogwood trees are good for USDA zones 5 through 9 and grow to be about 15 feet tall and 20 feet wide. In the springtime, white flowers will be loaded all over the tree, making the flowering dogwood one of the most spectacular flowering trees there is. It is pretty adaptive, too: it does better in shade and with well-drained soil, but it can adapt to other growing conditions.
  • Flowering dogwood trees have long been used for many different medical treatments, making this a perfect medicinal plant. Indians and Southern soldiers during the Civil War used the bark to make a tea to treat pain, reduce fevers, and increase appetite. It was also used to treat mange in dogs, to treat malaria, and even to function as a laxative. (A recipe for making the dogwood bark medicinal tea is provided below.) The leaves of the dogwood tree were also used to make a poultice to cover sores and wounds.

  • The red seeds that are produced after the dogwood tree flowers are a great food source for wildlife. You will find that white-tailed deer, wild turkey, squirrels, and game birds will all eat the seeds, making this a great plant for your wildlife food plots.
