Community-wide tree-planting and bare-root dogwood tree pick-up :: December 5, 2015

Bazillion Blooms is a community-wide dogwood tree-planting program to beautify our East Tennessee communities, improve the health of our environment, and foster community support and pride in our beloved native dogwood.

Our goal is to restore dogwoods to their former vitality in Knox and surrounding counties. Over the years, dogwoods have died out due to disease, development and neglect. Our dogwoods are battling to survive.  In the last six years, more than 7,200 dogwood trees have been planted in East Tennessee through the Bazillion Blooms program!


Visit these participating garden centers for larger dogwood trees and other blooming trees, bulbs, and shrubs to enrich your yard and for blooms this spring :: Stanley’s GreenhousesMayo Garden Centers, and Ellenburg Landscaping & Nursery!

Not quite sure how to plant or care for bareroot dogwood trees – other than you know you need to plant in December and that they need water?  Check out these tree planting instructions or check out this great five-minute video by Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum’s Brian Campbell & Mathew McMillan!




Please call us at [865] 637.4561 if you would like to consider having trees planted In Memory of loved ones who have passed. Dogwood Arts will arrange for the dogwood tree[s] to be planted in public land in Knox or surrounding counties where they will add beauty to our surroundings, improve our air, and help us restore the beloved dogwood to its former vitality. A donation of $25 or more recognizes your gift of a Bazillion Blooms and provides for one tree.
