Quick Overview:

Like many of its siblings in the ‘Appalachian’ series, this Dogwood offers strong resistance to powdery mildew. But you will want it most for its striking ruby-pink flower bracts and for new foliage that emerges burgundy in spring before turning green for summer. These small trees promise a long season of interest, and they are a lovely sight in any yard or garden.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, organically rich, acidic soils in part shade. Benefits from a 2-4″ mulch which will help keep roots cool and moist in summer.
