A seedling strain with good shape and free flowering habit. White bracts cover the branches and foliage in late spring after all other flowering trees have finished. Vigorous and upright in youth, becoming broader with age. Highly resistant to all common dogwood diseases making this a great candidate for humid or wet regions. Fall color is scarlet red to red-purple. Trees set a heavy crop of bright red fruits that are highly ornamental.
