Here is another beautiful dogwood cultivar. The ‘red cloud’ dogwood is known for its profusion of dark pink almost red blooms that pop out in early spring for a showy display. It is also smaller making it a wonderful understory tree or a perfect specimen tree to add in a garden. The ‘red cloud’ also offers year round interest. In the summer its crinkled dark green foliage that gives texture. In the fall the foliage is a beautiful scarlet red and the bright red berries that attract many birds are produced. In the winter, the smaller stature of the tree along with it low dense branching continues to give a unique focal point a garden.

I received thorough email communication from New Blooms Nursery from the time I ordered my Dogwood tree through the shipping process to planting instructions. So far, so good on the tree itself!
Tree came on date promised and in good condition. It is planted and looking good. The tree is small (as expected), but has nice big healthy leaves.
