Spectacular Spring and Fall Foliage Changes

The Dogwood is said to be among the most beautiful flowering plants, primarily due to its sea of purple reddish flowers. Because it handles drought pretty well, this would be the perfect variety for those who live in the deserts. Before opening up in spring, giant bulbs, which average three inches wide, encompass all throughout the plant, maturing into bright red flowers. Even the foliage itself is said to be appealing, changing into shades of dark green and red. Green leaves usually appear in the summer, whereas red leaves appear in winter where the temperature is colder. It's significant to note that these plants can get pretty big, averaging 15 feet in both height and width. Overall, it's fast growing, loves full and partial sun, does well in soil that has good drainage, and loves daily watering.

Exceptionally nice plants!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These were half the cost of elsewhere and twice the size. Lots of leaves and well-shaped. I am impressed! Thank you.
