Blossoms of Hope offers an easy and fun way to beautify Howard County while making a contribution to the community. And what better way to to say “thank you,” “I love you,” or “we will never forget you” than purchasing or sponsoring a living tree in honor of a loved one?

We offer two options:

  1. Sponsorships:  Individual Kwanzan Cherry or Dogwood trees already planted on public property are available for sponsorships starting at $155 each. The tree of your choosing will have a personalized plaque. You or your loved one will receive an official certificate suitable for framing recognizing your contribution to Blossoms of Hope.

  2. Purchases: Individual Kwanzan Cherry or Native Dogwood trees are available for purchase for your home or as a gift (gift certificates are available) throughout the year. Please see our online store for pricing and information.
