Details

An exciting new dogwood introduced by our neighbor Rutgers University. This is not a hybrid, like many previous introductions from Rutgers, but a deep rich pink bracted kousa selected after many generations of intercrossing different forms. It blooms heavily from as young as two years old. The bracts are medium-large 5" and can last as long as six to eight weeks. The new growth is heavily stained deep red. The original tree is 10 feet tall after 8 years. This new dogwood, named Scarlet Fire™ ('Rutpink') PPAF has amazing, glowing deep, rich pink bracts here in NJ even when the temperatures are in the 90's. It is disease and pest resistant as well as cold and heat tolerant.
