Description

Red Dogwood produce bright re flower bracts in early spring

Although dogwood trees are also native to Europe and Asia, the red dogwood (Cornus florida) is native to North America. It is widely planted in all areas of the country, especially in yards both urban and rural.

 

 Growing 20 to 30 feet high and spreading an equal distance, red dogwoods are a favorite ornamental tree. They produce bright red flower bracts in early spring, quickly followed by the new leaves. The flowers last a long time, producing a gorgeous spring-flowering show.

 

 In autumn, the leaves of the red dogwood turn vibrant ruby red, burgundy, and bronze. When the leaves fall, bright, glossy scarlet red fruits appear, staying on the tree well into the winter months.
