Raging Red Flowering Dogwood

Description
Seeing is believing; the crimson foliage on this dogwood stopped us in our tracks last year even before we saw the burgundy-to-crimson flower. Comparable to —if not darker than—Cherokee Brave, Raging Red's deep burgundy foliage color holds through summer, with older leaves slightly greening before exhibiting their flaming fall hue. The flower is also a deep burgundy (nearly black when it first opens), and it matures to a clear dark red. With typical dogwood fruit in the fall, this moderately sized tree is an open food source for dozens of species of birds—its fruit ripens in late summer through early fall and provides essential nourishment to birds before the long winter months arrive. Selected by Ray Jackson at Jackson Nursery. Cornus florida 'Raging Red'
