You may have heard all the bad news about growing pink Dogwoods but this Cornus florida, Cornus kousa cross should get every Dogwood lover excited because of its great flower color and its great disease resistance. 'Stellar Pink' forms a dense, rounded tree that thrives in full sun to partial shade and shows significant resistance to anthracnose, the disease that has plagued many older, native pink Dogwoods. Not only is this selection easier to grow, its flower power is just so impressive! 3 to 4" diameter flowers open in early to mid-May and cover the tree in a blanket of pink. This showy specimen continues to shine in summer and fall with bright red, bird attracting fruit and a purple-red fall foliage show that can only be called stellar!
