Since the initiation of Bazillion Blooms in 2009, Dogwood Arts, along with community and corporate partners, have planted more than 10,000 April-blooming, disease-resistant dogwood trees. In 2019, the community-wide tree-planting date (and tree pick-up day) is set for Saturday, December 7th. Knoxville communities can ‘Keep Knoxville Blooming’ for years to come by planting not only dogwood trees, but spring flowering trees and shrubs, bulbs, and perennials during the Fall gardening season. Fall planting allows plants to develop strong root systems over the winter months, so they are strong for upcoming summer heat. Trees must be ordered by midnight on Monday, November 18th.
