Cornus florida (Flowering Dogwood)

Cornus florida  Zone 5/6

Flowering Dogwood

15-30’ Tall by 20’ wide. It blooms in early spring (April) shortly after, but usually overlapping, the bloom period of the redbuds. The true dogwood flowers are actually tiny, yellowish green and insignificant, being compacted into button-like clusters. However, each flower cluster is surrounded by four showy, white, petal-like bracts which open flat, giving the appearance of a single, large, 3-4” diameter, 4-petaled, white flower. Oval, dark green leaves (3-6” long) turn attractive shades of red in fall. Bright red fruits mature in late summer to early fall and may persist until late in the year.
