dogwood tree – cornus florida

21 Apr

dogwood 001One of my favorite signs of Spring, the flowering dogwood is found in all the wooded areas in the Midwest.  It’s a little tricky to transplant, and some nurseries won’t guarantee it unless they plant it for you, but after it has been established for about two years it’s relatively carefree.  I like the scale for a small house and lot.  The flowers are elegant. dogwood 003 There are pink and white varieties, but the white is far and away my favorite.
