Flowering Dogwood, Cornus Florida Rubra, is a small deciduous tree that typically grows 15-30’ tall with a low-branching, broadly-pyramidal but somewhat flat-topped habit.

It arguably may be the most beautiful of the native American flowering trees. It blooms in early spring (April) shortly after, but usually overlapping, the bloom period of the Redbuds.

Cornus Florida Rubra has pink to reddish pink, petal-like bracts which open flat, giving the appearance of a single, large, 3-4" diameter, four-petaled, pink flower.

Bright red fruits are loved by birds as the fruits mature in late summer to early fall and may persist until late in the year.

Prefers full sun however will grow in shade but will not bloom.
