Trees Growing at Our Pleasant Hill Oregon Home

Cherokee Chief Dogwood

Cornus florida - Native to eastern U.S. Most commonly planted flowering dogwood in Northwest and mountain areas, where it is easy to grow. Deep rose pink flowers that are paler at base and red berry clusters. We have planted one of these in our front yard. It is about 8 ft. high. Dogwoods are deciduous. Cornus controversa (Giant Dogwood) There are a number of these growing in the wild on our acreage to heights of 50-60 feet. They have creamy white flowers in May. Shiny, bluish black 1/2 inch fruit, enjoyed by birds, ripens in August and September.
