 Cornus rubra has pink to reddish pink, petal-like bracts which open flat, giving the appearance of a single, large, 3-4" diameter, four-petaled, pink flower.  It blooms in early spring (April) shortly after, but usually overlapping, the bloom period of the redbuds. Oval, dark green leaves (3-6” long) turn attractive shades of red in fall. Bright red fruits are bitter and inedible to humans (some authors say poisonous) but are loved by birds. Fruits mature in late summer to early fall and may persist until late in the year.
