Dogwood trees are beautiful and are a staple in a lot of garden or landscape areas. They are overall great ornamental trees. There are many different kinds of dogwood trees a homeowner can choose from. The Kousa Milkyway Dogwood is a great choice.

These trees will also enjoy a full or partial sunlight environment and can grow in a variety of soil conditions, making it an all around great addition. This tree will bloom beautiful white flowers during the spring and early summer months of the year. The foliage is also lovely and will highlight the flowers and this tree also smells lovely so plant it along walkways or driveways or gathering areas for maximum effect. Another great selection is the White Flowering Dogwood. This tree will be anywhere from twenty to thirty-five feet tall. It grows well and adapts well to many different types of soil conditions but will do well in ones that are moist and acidic. They can grow in full sunlight or partially shaded environment. It will also bloom during the spring months of the year with some vibrant white blooms that are sure to steal the show and catch the eye of everyone passing by. It will do well as a stand-alone plant, or you can plant it as a bordering plant for your landscape. The Red Twig Dogwood is another top consideration. It will grow best in climate zones two through seven and will be anywhere from seven to nine feet tall and anywhere from five to ten feet wide.
