Here's a Dogwood with something to enjoy every season! Firebird ™ features bright pink and white flowers in spring, lovely pink, white and green foliage in the summer, ruby red fruits and purple and pink leaves in the fall! In the winter, an assortment of birds fly in to eat the berries!

A variegated form of fast-growing and disease-resistant Cherokee Brave ®, Firebird ™ has less chlorophyll in part of the leaves, making it grow slower than its parent while retaining the pink-red flush in new foliage. The white and green variegated foliage include emerging leaves tinged with red and burgundy.

Though it thrives in higher temperatures, Firebird ™ prefers morning sun and afternoon shade. Moist, though not consistently wet, acidic soil with a low-rate tree fertilizer maximize healthy growth. If pruned, it should be done after spring flowering.

Growing to about 20 feet high, Firebird ™ attracts birds and butterflies. Proper levels of water and sun protect it against disease and pests. Adequate watering is required after planting.
