Ornamental Features

Scarlet Fire® Flowering Dogwood is smothered in stunning clusters of rose flowers with pink overtones and scarlet edges held atop the branches from mid spring to early summer. It has attractive green foliage with rose veins throughout the season. The glossy pointy leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding red in the fall. It produces pink berries with red hints from early to mid fall. The fruit can be messy if allowed to drop on the lawn or walkways, and may require occasional clean-up. The peeling gray bark and indian red branches are extremely showy and add significant winter interest.
