This hybrid pink dogwood is bred from the same line as the Stellar Pink® dogwood developed by Rutgers, so it inherits outstanding beauty and disease resistance. A blend of pink highlights on white with shades of green give this cultivar a regal, yet soft presence in the garden. It is an outstanding tree for near the home, planting among shade trees, or anywhere in the garden. In the spring it will come alight with large pink and white flowers and in the summer it's elegant upward form provides a great showpiece nestled among other trees of structures. For those who want all of the characteristics of a dogwood with extra hardiness this tree is an outstanding choice.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
Received the plant promptly and planted same day (4/29/21) as directed. Then colder weather came through with plenty of rain to provide the moisture needed. Today is the second sunny day since planting, and temps are to be close to 60 F. So we are hoping the dormant bud tips will begin to crack and open to green leaves. Only gave 3 stars as we await the change from dormancy to active growing.
We are very pleased with our new tree. We planted it right away following the wonderful directions included and are looking forward to next spring. Thank you for the excellent service. We used a tomato cage and turned it up side down to protect the tree from the deer. Thank you again!
Trees was received with buds. Planted immediately and both now have leaves. Both are happy in their new home. Thank you.
It hasn’t leafed out yet but optimistic . It had very good root system on it when it arrived
I actually ordered both a white and pink bare root Kousa dogwood. Both arrived beautifully packaged.They did arrive fully leafed out, which was a surprise. And they arrived before our frost season ended, but New Blooms was quick to respond to my questions on how to care for them. Basically they said to pot them up and keep them protected until frost is over. Been doing that for 10 days. I did lose one branch of one tree (so far). Just transplanted them into the yard. We'll see what happens now. Good products and great/quick support via email! Great value compared with local nursery prices.
