These trees look great all year... but can literally stop traffic in the springtime with their vibrant pink blooms.
Grows rapidly to a mature height of 15-25 ft.
Pretty pink flowers start lighter in color, and then get slightly deeper as your tree ages... never giving you the same color twice! These blooms are even more remarkable when displayed against their own dark green background when its leaves appear.
Dogwoods are one of the first trees to bloom... putting everyone in a spring mood, weeks early.
In autumn, these green leaves turn a fiery red, marking the end of summer and bringing color to your fall landscape.
Gray stems with a bright red fruit and a cinnamon checkered bark offer winter interest, especially with a snowfall.
The fruit of the Pink Dogwood is an important source of winter food for many songbirds, including robins, cardinals and waxwings. Don't be surprised if you see Wild Turkey, as well.
This low-branching tree will grace your landscape in all four seasons, especially when grouped with White and Red Dogwoods.
Your tree arrives potted, with all of it's roots intact. Many nurseries dig Dogwoods out of the ground, then wash the dirt off the roots. This "bare rooting" process is fine for many trees but not Dogwoods. Shipping potted, helps ensures that you will have a healthy tree that will explode with new growth, rather than struggle to regrow roots.
