Dogwood Arts: Bazillion Blooms

Category: Fundraisers and Science & nature

Dogwood Arts is on a mission to Keep Knoxville Blooming and make it easy for you to make a difference: one tree at a time. Dogwood trees are native to our area and offer 4 seasons of interest: spring blooms, summer shade, crimson fall color and winter berries for wildlife. Our trees come from a grower in Middle Tennessee, are disease-resistant, spring-blooming, and available in pink or white.

Bare-root dogwood trees are available in pink or white for just $25 each (or five for $100).


How it works:
Option 1: Pick-Up & Plant Yourself
Purchase bare-root trees and plant them yourself! Order trees now through November 18th to pick-up locally on December 5th (pick-up location TBD). Plan ahead for spring blooms! Fall/winter is the best time to plant trees: the combination of warm soil, fall rains, and cool temperatures stimulates root growth to help your tree get established for next spring.

Option 2: Buy in Memory or Celebration
No matter what time of the year, you can celebrate a special event, honor an individual, or memorialize a loved one by donating a tree to the Historic Dogwood Trails. Your gift will Keep Knoxville Blooming and include a commemorative card (with your personal message) that will be mailed to the recipient of your choosing.
