Product Description

A new introduction from Rutgers, Scarlet Fire combines unique color and a long flowering season with disease and pest resistance as well as cold and heat tolerance. Its 5" dark pink and fuchsia flowers last for 6-8 weeks and stand up well in sunny, warm weather. New leaf growth is tinged with purple, and its dark green leaves turn red in the fall. Developed by Dr. Tom Molnar, Scarlet Fire Dogwood is a floriferous and moderately vigorous tree. In the summer, it develops 1" pink-red fruits that add interest and color. It flowers heavily at 2-4 years and grows to 10' in 8 years. It's a good choice for woodland gardens as well as for screening or privacy. 2-3' bareroot. Cornus kousa 'Scarlet Fire'
