  • What is your location? There are a few trees and shrubs with leaves that look like that, and yes dogwood is definitely one of them, but there is also a lychee lookalike that I have seen growing in the northeast USA that has very similar leaves as well. Hydrangea can also look a bit like that, but I don't think this is hydrangea.

Looks like a dogwood to me, w the reddish leaves.


Now that there are photos of the flowers, it's very clearly a pink dogwood.

Here is another good link w images and description from a Kansas botanical garden.


  • I added a picture of a flower from a couple weeks ago. It only had the one flower and it is gone now. Does this help?

  • Definitely dogwood! Give it some mulch and it will prosper!
