Question: Should my dogwood be blooming?

Flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) and kousa dogwood (Cornus kousa) produce flowers in the springtime only. Pacific dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) also blooms in the springtime but sometimes produces a second flush of bloom in the fall. Young dogwood trees need time to become established before they bloom reliably.

How do I get my dogwood to bloom?

Apply fertilizer to the soil to promote blooms. Use a general, all-purpose fertilizer. While dogwoods dont require regular fertilization, adding some fertilizer can help the tree bloom. This is especially true for dogwoods that were planted in non-fertile soil.

Are dogwood trees late blooming?

Several types of dogwood bloomed well into late June. A less common native dogwood that also blooms later than the well-known Cornus florida is the alternate-leaf or pagoda dogwood (Cornus alternifolia). This tree is native to mountainous areas with medium moisture.

Is dogwood tree flowering or non flowering?

There are several shrubby dogwoods that have very small insignificant flowers which have the effect of being non-flowering. If the things planted really are trees rather than shrubs, all of the tree form dogwoods including alternifolia, florida, kousa and others do flower.

Why doesnt my dogwood tree have flowers?

Moisture. Both drought and poor drainage can cause dogwood trees not to bloom. Pacific and kousa dogwoods are more tolerant of drought conditions than flowering dogwoods. Provide 1 inch of water per week to young dogwood trees up to six years old.
