Stellar Pink Dogwood
Stellar Pink Dogwood is a delightful ornamental tree. This is a moderate sized tree, growing up to 25 feet tall. It is rounded in shape and well branched, giving it a nice full look. The leaves are broadly oval in shape and dark green in color, giving the tree a nice appearance all through the growing season. Once fall arrives, the foliage turns a very nice purple-red in color. The flowers are 4 petaled and are large in size, at upwards of 5 inches. The flowers are bright pink, with a white to light pink center eye area. These flowers typically bloom in mid-spring. This is a sterile variety of dogwood and does not produce fruits.
Cornus ‘Rutgan’ grows to a height of 20 to 25 feet, with a spread of 15 to 20 feet. It is recommended for USDA climate zones 5 to 8. It can grow in full to partial sunlight. Stellar Pink does well with average amounts of moisture in well drained soils. It has a good deal more insect and disease resistance in comparison to other types of dogwoods.
