Cornus kousa ‘Rutpink’ Scarlet Fire®

Common Name: Scarlet Fire® Dogwood
Size: 20' tall x 15' wide
Fall Color: Dark crimson-maroon
Bloom: dark pink-fuchsia
Zone: 5 thru 8


The first kousa dogwood released by Rutgers University. The deep pink/fuchsia bracts appearing in early summer are a show stopper. The green leaves with their red veins produce a burgundy tinge at a distance, and the form is much fuller than the other pink kousa varieties available in the market. The popularity and demand for Scarlet Fire has nowhere to go but up.
