Empress of China™ Dogwood
Profusion of white blooms in spring
Empress of China™ helps create an environment that delights the senses. Each spring, you'll marvel at the dense cascades of flowers that cover its branches. The 1 1/2" blooms open a lime-green color and mature to creamy white. The blossoms are followed by charming, strawberry-like berries that provide a late-summer or fall banquet for songbirds as they visit your yard. The tree's glossy, green leaves hang on through the winter, shedding as new growth appears in the spring. Empress of China is evergreen in the South. In cooler climates, we consider it a semi-evergreen. Regardless of where you live, you'll want to plant this beauty in partial shade, avoiding hot afternoon sun. Keep away from full shade, too, as it may limit spring flowering. Ships now as an established plant, ready to give your landscape an instant boost.
