Long Lasting Ruby Red Spring Blooms

The Red Flowering Dogwood Tree (Cornus Florida, Cherokee Chief) is a traditional dogwood in an exceptional color that offers year-round interest.

You will know that spring has truly arrived when your Red Flowering Dogwood leaps into action.  Gorgeous ruby red blooms will cover the tree starting before the leaves appear and lasting long after other spring bloomers quit. 

To add to this spectacular show the new foliage starts out red then matures to a glossy emerald green. The red and green leaves form the most perfect backdrop to the pink and crimson blossoms that last well into the season. As proof of their beauty,

The Dogwood Festival in Atlanta, GA brings visitors from far and wide to celebrate this trees brilliant flowering period. 

In fall your Red Flowering Dogwood will transform again. Its leaves turn stunning shades of bright scarlet, burgundy and amber. Sure to brighten even the furthest corner of your yard.

The Red Flowering Dogwood will start to shed its leaves in late fall when glossy, ruby red fruit will be revealed.  Not only will the branches provide a feast for songbirds, they will also be a wonderful addition to you winter décor.

The Red Flowering Dogwoods size makes it easy to add to any landscape. Plant it near a patio or window where you can enjoy it all year long.

Fall color Review by Nick
My tree is bright in the spring and bright again in the fall. Red Flowering dogwoods have gorgeous fall colors. The fall leaves produce several distinctive hues and colors and they rake up easily. At least much easier than my silver maple!
deer resistant Review by Cricket
Deer are the biggest pests I have for all of my ornamental trees and plants. At least this tree shows some resistance to them. I hope this resistance continues!
Early spring bloom Review by Bob
I enjoy this plant because it is one the few plants that blooms before it leafs out. Spring is here when this tree blooms its unique red flowers. Mine sits on a side hill and the bigger it gets the blooms it displays every year.
Tree favorites Review by Paula
Dogwoods are my favorite plant! The one you sent is pretty big already. You use superb boxing methods.
Attracts birds Review by William T
You are so right about the birds being attracted to the fruit. I really enjoy them fluttering around my red dogwood in the fall and winter.
