CORNUS

All dogwoods offer attractive foliage and blossoms; some have spectacular fruit or winter bark. Leaves of many types turn brilliant colors in fall. What appear to be flower petals in many dogwoods are actually bracts—petal-like modified leaves. These surround the inconspicuous true flowers.

Cornus Stellar series

These disease-resistant single-trunked hybrids between C. florida and C. kousa grow to about 20 ft. tall, 25–30 ft. wide. Bloom (white or pink) comes between the midspring bloom of C. florida and late-spring or early-summer bloom of C. kousa. Blossoms appear along with the leaves. All have brilliant fall color.
