Cornus florida is a native, straight species flowering tree commonly called  flowering dogwood, and is considered to be among the most spectacular flowering trees in United States at springtime. Flowering dogwood can be multi- or single-stemmed, and grows 15-30' tall with a short trunk and horizontal branching, typically wider than it is tall. In spring, a profusion of long-lasting white bracts fills the tiered branches, followed by attractive green leaves and bright red fruits in summer for attracting birds and wildlife for the fall and winter seasons. 

Cornus florida grows best in full to part sun, though it prefers things a bit on the shadier size, and may be best grown as an understory tree in well drained soils. Additionally, you can provide a 2-4" layer of mulch to help keep the roots cool and moist through especially hot summers.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
