Dogwood Trees - Scene 24

Scenes from the Old South - Scene 24

Dogwood Trees

Our great dogwoods (Cornus florida) have reigned supreme for many years as one of the traditional Southern landscape plants. Dogwoods are deciduous, spring-flowering trees native to the eastern half of the United States, and grow to a height of 30 feet. They are beautiful plants for partially shady, understory and sandy soil areas. If you live in the Southeast, you probably remember all the "dogwood trails" that people followed when our native flowering dogwoods bloomed each spring. Thirty years ago, dogwood was the #1 flowering tree.
