Cornus x 'Celestial Shadow' is a hybrid dogwood cultivar that originates from a happy accident! Originally part of the Rutgers University dogwood breeding series, 'Celestial Shadow' is a second generation hybrid with improved disease and pest resistance over other dogwoods with the addition of eye-catching yellow variegated leaves which turn even more striking in the fall, picking up hues of red, pink, and purple!

Cornus x 'Celestial Shadow' grows to 15'-20' tall and prefers part shade, and average, well-drained soil. This dogwood produces its showy flowers with large white bracts in the spring, and these flowers turn to red fruits, which are attractive to birds and small mammals.

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.
