Dogwood Arts Announces Tree Sales Now Open for 2019 Bazillion Blooms Program

Press Release # Local

KNOXVILLE, TN – Dogwood Arts is on a mission to Keep Knoxville Blooming one tree at a time through the annual Bazillion Blooms program. Disease-resistant dogwood trees are on sale now through Nov. 18 at www.dogwoodarts.com or by calling 865-637-4561.

These 2-foot to 4-foot bare-root trees are available for $25 each or five for $100. Trees ordered from Dogwood Arts must be picked up 9 a.m. to noon Dec. 7 at the UT Gardens off Neyland Drive. Trees will not be distributed at a later time or date. Additionally, a community-wide tree planting date is set for Dec. 7.

Planting trees is a simple and effective way to clean air, reduce stress, and conserve the environment. Dig in and make a lasting difference by planting trees during the fall gardening season. Trees planted in the fall have time to develop strong root systems over the winter months before the challenges of the drying summer heat.

The Bazillion Blooms program began in 2009 with a mission to revitalize tree plantings along Knoxville’s historic Dogwood Trails and throughout the region. Last year, Dogwood Arts added 10,000 dogwood trees to East Tennessee’s landscape in just 10 years through the Bazillion Blooms program, ensuring the region’s spring beauty will continue well into the future.

Larger blooming trees, flowering shrubs, bulbs, and perennials are available at these participating Garden Centers: Ellenburg Landscaping & Nursery, Mayo Garden Centers, Northshore Nursery, Stanley’s Greenhouse & Wilson Fine Gardens.
