Description

The red flowering dogwood is a historic and elegant tree that can bring beauty to your garden and this beauty can be seen all year. In early spring, this dogwood flowers with its dark pink bracts that have subtle highlights of red filling up the tree. When summer arrives the unique branching and deep green textured leaves provide an elegant and graceful appearance that can be seen when set among larger straighter shade trees, evergreens, or the sharp geometry of your home. Swirling scarlet and purple leaves add to the color show in the fall, along with brilliant red berries that attract up to 36 species of songbird through the early winter.
