Every so often a new plant is introduced that is destined to become a classic. 'Appalachian Spring' is one of them. It has demonstrated unusual resistance to dogwood anthracnose, a destructive disease which affects this treasured native species. The parent tree was found growing wild in heavily shaded forest understory on Catoctin Mountain in Maryland. In U.S. Forest Service tests, thousands of dog-woods were screened for resistance to anthracnose, and 'Appalachian Spring' was the only one to survive! An excellent tree with four seasons of interest, it blooms prolifically with white flowers which are followed by abundant bright red fruit. The strikingly larger leaves than most other flowering dogwood cultivars turn bright red in autumn. Its vigorous upright growth habit reaches 20 feet in 10 years.
