Pink Dogwood, Cornus Florida 'Rubra'
Pink Dogwood is a garden favorite
Pink Dogwood trees are stunning. The color is so vibrant that when you pass by them, you just have to stop and look. The pretty pink color gets even lighter but then darkens when it ages. In fall the leaves turn fiery red. This will flow great with your landscape as fall approaches. This type of tree does have low branches which are great for all seasons year round. They can be planted in a small yard and also more significant properties as well. They will make your house look fuller, and they can be planted right in the middle of your property if that look appeals to you.
PINK DOGWOOD IS A WONDERFUL ORNAMENTAL TREE FOR A GARDEN
Pink Dogwood will provide beautiful blooms during the spring months and gorgeous green leaves during the summer. The blooms on this tree will be a pinkish color when in bloom. They will do well in moist soils but can also adapt to other types of soil. The birds love this tree because with the full blooms they feel safe in the tree and feel safe and secure building their home in the branches. Most will make a nest and come back to the same nest each year because they seek its safety. It’s an eye-catcher and the showstopper when in full bloom and showing all its glory!
