Plants for Fall Color
Find plants that develop colorful fall foliage in shades ranging from reds, oranges, yellows, purples, and maroon shades. Some may show all of these colors! More sun generally makes for better fall color.
Double and single dark pink to near red blossoms are produced in early spring on this semi-evergreen (evergreen down to about 15oF), densely branched and compact Dogwood. Little Ruby Dogwood produces deep red tinged new growth and has excellent deep red to maroon fall color that holds through much of winter. Grow this hardy and disease resistant hybrid as a medium to large shrub or train it into a small specimen tree. Little Ruby™ Dogwood is the first release in a line of new hybrid Dogwoods developed through the breeding and selection work of Dr. Tom Ranney and the Mountain Crop Improvement Lab at NCSU. It is considered to be resistant to Dogwood anthracnose as well as powdery mildew. Coming for 2017! Item# 11122
