Flowering Dogwood

Cornus florida 'Pumpkin Patch'

'Pumpkin Patch' Flowering Dogwood was found by nurseryman Don Shadow as a chance seedling. The dark pink flowering Dogwood sports a combination of light green (almost yellow) foliage crowned by burgundy new growth. What caught his eye in particular was the fall color, which is brilliant orange (hence "Pumpkin Patch"), followed by orange twigs in winter. 'Pumpkin Patch' has shown some susceptibility to mildew in hot humid weather, but it is still a very rare, cool collector's plant.
