The Pink Flowering Dogwood is regarded as one of the best of the smaller spring-flowering trees. In early to mid-spring, sensational pink to pale pink flowers appear all over the dogwood tree. In summer, its layered canopy clad with slightly twisted, mid-green leaves, provides welcome shade and visual appeal. In autumn the foliage turns brilliant red before dropping its leaves. This small ornamental tree makes an excellent specimen tree and is well suited to smaller gardens. Prune when planting to encourage new growth, and before winter. The dogwood has moderate water requirements once established and will benefit from deep soaking in the peak of summer.

Soil: It prefers humus-rich, well-draining soil with an application of good quality fertiliser in spring.
Conditions: Full sun. Plant in an area protected from strong winds. Dogwoods require protection during cold snaps and hard frosts.
Size: Height 5m x width 3m
