Trees Fall Color

Flowering Dogwood

You can't beat the dramatic coloration of flowering dogwood in autumn. Frankly, the tiers of white flowers that clothe the branches in spring are quite enough to sell anyone on this tree. But then comes the second show in fall, with drooping red leaves and bright-red berries.

New variegated selections, such as 'Cherokee Sunset,' offer even more color, but there's nothing wrong with just plain old dogwood. Remember, the tree prefers light shade rather than full sun. And be sure to water this shallow-rooted tree during summer droughts, or scorched leaves may ruin the fall show.
