This durable dogwood will grow anywhere—sun or shade! The first tree to bloom in very early spring, with long-lasting, bright yellow flower clusters held close to the bare branches. The flowers turn into bright red, oblong berries later in the summer which, although sour, make delicious syrup and preserves. Deeply veined, dark green leaves may turn dark burgundy in fall. Maintains a dense, upright oval form without pruning. Tolerates shade and heavy clay soil well. Use as a single specimen in foundation plantings or near the patio. Also impressive planted in groups and makes an amazing hedge!
Mature Height: 20 feet
Mature Spread: 10 feet
Spacing: 6 feet
Sunlight: Full Sun, Part Sun, Shade
Soil Type: Any Soil
Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
