You could try. It would have time to get a root system going, but I
don't know what the heat would do to a newly planted dogwood. Most
places have stopped shipping. I ordered one just under the wire for the
last spring shipment and it failed to leaf out.
I don't recommend a bare root one. I lost my balled and burlapped or
potted (can't remember) one too though years ago. It's best to plant
them in the spring, then you are going to know if they are going to grow
I planted the last potted holly shrub today in zone 6. I've planted balled
and potted trees and shrubs as late as the later part of June with complete
success. Make sure not to disturb the rootball when removing the burlap or
pot. Keep the shrub or tree watered after planting.
If they are container grown, yes you can plant them now. However, I
would set up a soaker hose and let it run for at least 6 hours after
you plant it, and before you remove the tree from container, be sure
to thoroughly saturate the root ball BEFORE it goes in the ground.
