    Noteworthy Characteristics

When in flower, this is one of the most beautiful trees you'll ever set your eyes upon. In late spring, it's showy fringe-like blooms cascade downward like the white beard of a wise old man, inspiring the name Grancy Greybeard. The flowers also add a lovely, potent, sweet perfume fragrance to the air about when the dogwoods are beginning to fade.  It is attractive to a variety of beneficial insects while in bloom, and to birds and small mammals when fruiting. It is a slow to moderate grower reaching maybe 20 feet in height with an equal width over the years.

    I tried the bare root method and got mixed results with the same amount of work. These plants are not only thriving, they are already blooming! Packaging was excellent for, what has to be, a challenge to ship. Thanks, Gardner Direct.

    We love the plant, it came in excellent condition. It has just finished blooming and was beautiful. I'm sure as it gets larger it will be spectacular.
