Dogwood - Tree 'Aurora®' - 7 Gal.


Cornus x 'Aurora'

A member of the Stellar Series that came to us by way of Rutgers University, Aurora is a cross between Cornus florida and Cornus kousa that brings the best of both parents to a single plant. 'Aurora' promises resistance to borers and dogwood anthracnose while exhibiting a flower show that falls between the timing of the two parents bloom time, starting in mid-May. Its bloom is, in a word, magnificent with large, greenish-white bracts that open far larger than either parent and transition to a creamy white. The flower production is so heavy the foliage will almost disappear providing a cloud-like appearance in the landscape that is a sight to behold!
