Plant A Bazillion Blooms; Local Garden Centers Partner with Dogwood Arts to Offer Disease-Resistant Dogwood Trees

What would East Tennessee be without its dogwood trees? Well, we hope to never find out! Dogwood Arts is asking Knoxville to dig in and plant dogwood trees. Appalachian Snow or Cherokee Brave disease-resistant dogwood trees will be available for purchase from www.dogwoodarts.com or at a participating garden center.

Kicking off the 2010 Bazillion Blooms tree-planting program, Dogwood Arts is offering a spectacular price of $25 each or $100 for five dogwood trees the month of November – exclusive to www.dogwoodarts.com for bare-root dogwood trees. Trees ordered from Dogwood Arts may be picked up on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 8 a.m. until noon at UT Gardens.

To purchase ball and burlap trees to which prices vary based on size, visit one of our participating Bazillion Blooms garden centers:

• Ellenburg Landscaping and Nursery – 722 Vanosdale Road
• Thress Nursery Gardens – 7343 Old Clinton Pike
• Mayo Garden Centers – 4718 Kingston Pike & 620 E. Emory Road
• Stanley's Greenhouses – 3029 Daveport Road

Bazillion Blooms is a collaborative effort between the City of Knoxville, Knox County, UT Institute of Agriculture, area garden clubs, and neighborhood associations. Dogwood Arts established this three-year program to restore the former vitality of East Tennessee's dogwood tree population in Knox and surrounding counties. The dogwood tree is vital to East Tennessee's economy, environmental health, and heritage and is a source of community pride and tradition.

The Dogwood Arts Bazillion Blooms program is sponsored by Wells Fargo agents Lisa Wiles and Judy Sehgal, Southeast Home Mortgage manager Samanda Knight, the Knoxville Garden Club, Walgreens, and the Knoxville News Sentinel.
