Why plant Radiant Rose™ Chinese Dogwood Treeling?
Like a giant Rose bush in tree form! When spring slips into summer, Radiant Rose Chinese Dogwood opens its masses of precious pink flowers. They look like Wild Rose blossoms (with four petals instead of five). No thorns on this baby, though—just strong, smooth branches clothed in lush green foliage. In fall, the leaves turn a rich red color with hints of orange, making another fine show in your garden. Use Radiant Rose as a stunning standalone specimen, or incorporate it into a strategically placed mixed border to provide privacy while you relax in your yard or on your patio.
American Flowering Dogwoods are well-known and well-loved, and in most parts of the eastern U.S., they are a common sight. Less familiar in gardens are the also very beautiful Chinese Dogwoods, a.k.a. Kousa Dogwoods. These usually bloom in white. Even less common are the pink-flowering Chinese Dogwoods, and of those, Radiant Rose is among the finest. It has proved to be more cold-hardy than the older leading variety, Satomi, and its color is a more consistent, rich pink. (Note that flower color may be lighter on young trees.) Radiant Rose is an exciting selection that was discovered in a nursery in Boring, Oregon.
How to use Radiant Rose™ Chinese Dogwood Treeling in the landscape?
Another cool attribute of Radiant Rose Chinese Dogwood is its round, red, strawberry-sized fruits. They hang like ornaments from the branches in early fall. If you split one open, you can sample the pulp inside. It’s sweet and tasty!
Hardiness Zone: 5-9
How To Plant Radiant Rose™ Chinese Dogwood Treeling
Plant Radiant Rose Chinese Dogwood in an area of your yard that receives full sun or light shade. It’s not too fussy about soils, but prefers an acid soil and needs good drainage. Water weekly, or better yet, use the Bower & Branch™ Water Element to deliver just the right amount of moisture to your tree throughout the growing season. Unlike many Flowering Dogwood trees, the Chinese Kousa Dogwood is highly resistant to disease—most importantly, the dreaded anthracnose that has threatened so many of our native Dogwoods—so you can rest easy with Radiant Rose.
How Does Shipping Work?
Size Small, Medium, and Large plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 4-7 business days.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
