Appalachian Spring Dogwood
Searing red fall foliage, the best of nearly any Dogwood!
In addition to being 100% resistant to anthracnose, this white-flowered variety is very vigorous and quick growing, reaching its mature size of about 20 feet high and wide sooner than expected. Its foliage, unusually large for the species, turns from apple-green to intense crimson in autumn, and large red fruits follow the spring blooms, delighting the birds all the way into winter.
Upright and naturally symmetrical, 'Appalachian Spring' makes a fine specimen. It combines well with pink-flowered Dogwoods in a mass planting, such as the lovely Cherokee Brave™. We highly recommend this extraordinary native Dogwood. Zones 5-9.
