    I have an area in my yard that gets a lot of water when it rains would they be good enough to put their to soak up a lot of the water

    The Red Osier Dogwood would tolerate wet areas. While they will take up some water into their biomass, it is difficult to say how much of a water reduction you would notice by planting. It would surely help to some degree, but without knowing a number of factors about the soil, etc, we couldn't guarantee the result. Thanks, CRN

    Can I specify a delivery date for the dogwoods? I don't need them just yet but want to be sure I have a dozen reserved for delivery in early May.

    Yes! Our nursery actively ships each spring between early April and late May. During checkout on our website, you can choose the week which you would like your order delivered. If you call in your order, please make sure the phone rep knows you would like to specify the timing of delivery. Without doing so, our nursery will choose the most appropriate window of time for your area. Thanks, CRN
