Cornus forida rubra ‘Firebird Fircomz’

A fabulous new Florida dogwood with colorful flowers and foliage, ‘Firebird’ has red flowers and white centers. Its finest attribute is green-and-white variegated foliage, which also sports red to burgundy new growth all season long. As the nights cool and the fall season approaches, the red tones take over the entire leaf. This selected native is slower growing than other cultivars and reaches a mature height of approximately 20 to 25 feet and a width of 20 feet. It is hardy to Zone 5.
