The largest flower bracts of any dogwood we know of, this hybrid dogwood from Rutgers University is sure to become one of the best. From its C. Nuttalli parent it produces huge, cupped, pure white bracts which reminds one of magnolia blooms. These are displayed on top of clean, disease-free foliage courtesy of it's C. kousa parent. Trees are vigorous and upright becoming broader with age. A site to behold in flower, this will amaze all your customers.

A great substitute for Pacific Dogwood cultivars that lack the disease resistance, especially to anthracnose.
