A cold hardy flowering dogwood tree, Pagoda Dogwood in tree form presents an amazing display in any landscape! Unique horizontaly growing branches appear to create perfect tiers that rise from trunk to tree top! (hence the name pagoda). A perfect semi dwarf tree for smaller yards or gardens, the real show starts when this architectural masterpiece is smothered with clusters of extremely fragrant creamy white blossoms held on a backdrop of lush green deeply ribbed foliage in spring! These flowers attract hoards of butterflies and other pollinators to the garden. That's not all, as dark blue ornamental berries appear after the blossoms and hang on crimson red stocks making for a beautiful contrasting effect of colors. This North American native tree offers great benefits to wildlife providing excellent shelter and habitat for songbirds and more. Beautiful and flaming purple to red fall foliage is the cherry on top and creates a memorable end to the season. Unique architectural branching even provides interest through the winter months when the branches are bare and easy to view. Plant this North American Native for years of natural beauty and enjoyment.
