Coral Red Dogwood (Cornus sericea)
Coral Red Dogwood: TN Nursery customers can’t get enough of Cornus sericea or coral red dogwood trees. The North American native species is a deciduous ornamental tree that flourished from Canada to the mid-south and midwestern states.
Why do they love it? For its lovely display of white flowers in the late springtime or early summer.
Most gardeners adore coral red dogwood trees for more than just their prolific white flowers; they also enjoy the year-round color! The coral red dogwood’s attractive coral-colored stems enhance the lovely white blossoms. Those stems are bronze- to red during spring and summer and turn to an intense coral hue that provides wintertime color after the leaves fall.

Once it matures, it will require almost no additional attention except during an extended drought. They flourish in the cool to moderately warm USDA growing zones.

Gardeners Find Coral Red Dogwood So Easy to Grow
Once your coral red dogwood trees establish strong roots, they will give you a stunning display of enormous white flowers in the late springtime or early summer and an attractive green crown during the summer. When the short days of fall arrive, the leaves turn orange, bronze, red, or russet.
Before you plant your coral dogwood trees, find a full-sunshine spot with well-draining soil. They love moisture, but they do not tolerate wet roots. De-compact the ground and scoop in a generous amount of organic woody materials. Mulch, peat moss, or leaf litter all work well.
After the coral red dogwood achieves maturity, you will only need to fertilize it twice yearly, prune it as needed, and mulch around the base to insulate it in the late fall.
