Cornus florida Rubra, commonly called the Pink Flowering Dogwood, is regarded as one of the best of the smaller spring-flowering trees. This small ornamental tree makes an excellent specimen tree and is well suited to smaller gardens.

In early to mid-spring, sensational pink to pale pink flowers appear all over the 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 tree has moderate water requirements once established. It will benefit from deep soaking in the peak of summer. Plant in an area protected from strong winds. It prefers humus-rich, well-draining soil with an application of good quality fertiliser in spring. Dogwoods require protection during cold snaps and hard frosts. Prune when planting to encourage new growth, and before winter.

Soil: Rich, well-drained, well-worked soil
Conditions: Cooler climate in full sun location. Protect from hard frosts
Size: Grows up to 5m tall and 3m wide.
