Cornus officinalis '(KLM FF) Spring Queen'

Spring Queen Japanes Cornel Dogwood

Categories: Flowering/Ornamental Trees

Profuse spring yellow flowers and showy brown and orange exfoliating bark make this a great choice. C. 'Spring Queen' was selected by Roy Klehm because of its abundant spring blooms. It subsequently has developed a good upright form with vibrant, healthy green summer foliage, a good crop of deep red fall fruit and a lovely orange-red fall color.
