This blushing darling will warm up any landscape with its rosy pink blooms in late spring and burnished red leaves in fall. Find a place for it in the middle of your yard or along a driveway or path, and it will reward you with years of carmine colors! It even produces red-orange ornamental fruit through the summer.

Rosy Teacups® is extremely floriferous, producing compact, dense heads of floral bracts. The blooms are over 3 inches wide and sport an alluring pink color that burns magenta along the edges. Not only are the flowers larger than average, but there are simply many, many more of them. And the blooms (actually bracts) overlap for an even fuller effect. These blooms are long-lasting, as well, holding on for 3 weeks or more!

Like other dogwoods, Rosy Teacups® grows slowly to a mature height and width of 20 to 25 feet. It has a low, dense growth habit, forming a distinctive rounded head slightly wider than it is tall. The foliage is thickly branched and covered in glossy green foliage that turns red in the fall.

Rosy Teacups® exhibits good pest and disease resistance: no insect or disease problems have been observed during the plant's 15 year history of field testing.

Rosy Teacups® can be grown in well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. It prefers moist, organically rich, acidic soils and will benefit from a 2- to 4-inch layer of mulch, which helps keep the roots cool and moist in summer.

This plant exhibits great cold hardiness in zone 6, with no winter die-back. Give it full sun in the North and part-shade in the South.
