STELLAR PINK is a hybrid dogwood (Cornus florida x Cornus kousa) that was developed by Elwin R. Orton, Jr. as part of the Stellar series of dogwoods released by Rutgers University. It is noted for its vigorous habit, large-bracted flowers, profuse bloom and resistance to anthracnose and dogwood borer. It is a small deciduous tree with a dense, upright habit. It has a uniform width from top to bottom, typically maturing to 15-20’ tall and as wide. Flowers bloom in spring. The true dogwood flowers are actually tiny, yellowish green and insignificant, being compacted into button-like clusters. However, each flower cluster is surrounded by four showy, petal-like, pink bracts which open flat, giving the appearance of a single, large, 3-5” diameter, 4-petaled, pink flower. Floral bracts on this cultivar are rounded and overlapping. Oval to elliptic, dark green leaves (4-6” long) turn attractive shades of purple-red in fall. STELLAR PINK is sterile and does not produce fruit.This is a good tree for planting near utility lines, next to buildings or near patios. It is also an excellent contrast tree for larger evergreen backgrounds.
The pink dogwood grows to a height of around 25' and a spread of around 25' at maturity.
The pink dogwood is an important source of food for many small birds and mammals including robins, cardinals and waxwings.
