The Neon Burst™ Dogwood is a dependable shrub that can handle challenging summer weather while continuing to look fantastic. New leaves of the Cornus alba grow on bold red stems and are chartreuse with hints of bronze. During the summer, the leaves transition to brilliant chartreuse. The hardy foliage resists scorching even during peak afternoon summer sun and heat. The dazzling leaves display purple, red, yellow, and orange hues during the fall. This deciduous shrub loses its foliage during the winter, but the stems turn a glossy deep scarlet red for an unexpected pop of color.

Use this dogwood to provide four seasons of color as part of a mass planting, hedge, or accent. The compact form makes this an excellent plant to feature along a fence or foundation wall. The Neon Burst™ Dogwood is a mounded, upright plant that can easily live as a perennial in USDA zones 2 through 7. Clusters of creamy white flowers bloom in the spring but are generally not very showy. This perennial is grown for its beautiful foliage.

Neon Burst™ Dogwood Care

Plant in full sun to partial shade and use moist but well-drained soil. The soil should have a slightly acidic or neutral pH. Water the plant weekly, especially during the first growing season. Once it is established, the plant may not need as much help with water, but give it a drink when the top several inches of soil are dry.

Apply a balanced fertilizer every few weeks during the growing season to support new growth. The Neon Burst™ Dogwood is a mounded shrub that naturally maintains a rounded shape, so pruning is not necessary, but you can trim the plant to better fit your space. 

Neon Burst™ Dogwood Spacing

This upright plant will grow 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. When creating a hedge or mass planting, dogwood shrubs can be spaced 2 to 4 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
