Cornus floridus is a medium-sized tree with a dense, spreading umbrella-like canopy with horizontal branching. Large four-petaled flowers bloom in early spring and are followed by bright red fruits that can persist into late fall. Leaves turn a brilliant red in fall. One of the most popular landscaping trees in the South.
