Discover the charm of the Cornus Florida or Flowering Dogwood, a small deciduous tree notable for its distinctively beautiful blooms and wide growth. Standing at 30 ft high and often wider than it is tall, this tree mesmerizes with its conspicuous white flower-like bracts that grace its branches in April and May, just before the leaves emerge. The tree's shiny red fruits redden in late September and October, offering a feast to a multitude of bird species, and thus aiding in seed distribution.
Beyond its beauty, the tree offers practical uses - its fruit serves as a bitter digestive tonic, and its peeled twigs make effective toothbrushes for teeth whitening. Its bark, boasting an attractive alligator hide appearance, stands out in winter landscapes. Cherished for its astringent and antiperiodic properties, the Flowering Dogwood was once used medicinally by North American Indian tribes, with parts of the tree being used as quinine substitutes, fever reducers, and treatments for various childhood diseases.
Native to eastern North America, the Flowering Dogwood adds elegance to any landscape, painting a picture of natural wonder with its horizontal layers of low branches, striking flower-like bracts, and lush green leaves that turn a rich red-brown in the fall. As the most recognizable of the dogwoods, this tree is a celebration of the changing seasons, bringing an array of colors, wildlife, and intriguing textures right in your own backyard.
