Red Dogwood Tree
Creates Brilliant Spring Color for Weeks
This tree is an all-season show-stopper, but especially in spring with its pink-red blossoms that burst out with brilliant color.
You truly know spring has arrived when the Dogwoods are strutting their blooms.
Gorgeous emerald green leaves sprout just after the blossoms appear, lending contrast to the deep pinks and crimsons. Lucky for you it's a display that sticks around for a long while to enjoy!
Fall arrives and the Red Dogwood's leaves turn fiery shades of ruby red, burgundy, and bronze. Multi-faceted depths of color appear as leaves fall away, revealing glossy scarlet red fruit, which provides an abundant feast throughout the winter for songbirds, squirrels, and other wildlife.
This hardy tree grows to about 20-25 feet tall, with a 20-25 foot spread, and always manages to gracefully light up that boring corner of your yard.
It does well in most soil conditions, and can handle full sun or even partial shade. A Red Dogwood would pretty much feel at home anywhere in your landscape.
The Red Dogwood's manageable size makes it an ideal ornamental accent you can plant close to a patio or terrace. Any small or tight spot where larger trees would feel crowded poses no challenge for the versatile Red Dogwood.
Red Dogwood is drought tolerant and largely unbothered by most pests or diseases, so it's carefree and easy to keep.
You'll want to plant this one near an outdoor seating area or picture window, where you can relax and enjoy watching whatever the season brings.
