Light Flowering dogwoodSole pieno
When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw. The Flowering dogwood should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light.These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year.

Fertilize Flowering dogwood
To obtain a florid development it is important to remember to fertilize our shrubs periodically; in the spring letís use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, which will favour the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. We can intervene at the end of the winter, mixing a good dose of slow release organic fertilizer to the soil surrounding our plant. During the spring it is also possible to act periodically, with liquid or powder fertilizers, to add to the water when irrigating, every 20-25 days.

Cultivation Flowering dogwood
The Flowering dogwood grows erect, developing a short stem with a small crown, usually roundish. These plants are shrubs. This plant in the spring assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 3 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Water Flowering dogwoodTenere Umido
Water regularly, every 2-3 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 1-2 buckets of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Flowering dogwood in a container, we should remember that it will have slightly different needs compared to a specimen grown in the ground: we should pay more attention to its water and nutritional needs and check more often for possible development of parassites.

Pests Flowering dogwood
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Mold Flowering dogwood
These shrubs need an averagely humid, not too drained soil .
