This ornamental tree is a star year round! In late spring to early summer fluttery soft pink flowers bloom for weeks atop leafy, layered branches. The flower petals (bracts) are rounded and overlapping. In fall the dark green, deeply veined leaves turn reddish purple. In winter the spreading, tiered branches create a lovely silhouette. Bark on trunks exfoliates into irregular patches creating more interest. This variety is sterile and does not produce the fruit typical of other dogwood trees. For best growth this tree requires loose, acidic and well-draining soil. We recommend amending heavy clay soil with shredded pine bark and adding soil sulfur to make it more acidic. Equally pretty as a stand-alone specimen or a more natural feature blending in with other plants in the dappled shade of woodland gardens.
