The pink dogwood is a very popular landscape tree. Pretty pink flowers start lighter in color, and then get slightly deeper as the tree ages. During the fall the leaves turn a fiery reddish-purple. The fruit of the Pink Dogwood is an important source of winter food for many songbirds.
We offer Pink Flowering Dogwood 6' tall in a 15 gallon container.
Choose a sunny to partially shaded area. Prefers moist, organically rich, acidic soils. Benefits from a 2-4" mulch, which will help keep roots cool and moist during the summer.
Cornus is a genus of about 30–60 species of woody plants in the family Cornaceae, commonly known as dogwoods, which can generally be distinguished by their blossoms, berries, and distinctive bark. Several species have small heads of inconspicuous flowers surrounded by a collection of large, typically white petal-like bracts, while others have more open clusters of petal-bearing flowers.
