Cornus alternifolia

Cornus alternifolia
pagoda dogwood

Common name pagoda dogwood
Family cornaceae
Life cycle tree (Z3-7)
Flowers white (May)
Size 15-25'
Light sun-part shade

Our specimen is still small - but it treated us to its first blooms the past couple of years. I like the coloration of the new leaves, too. The real attraction will be the elegant shape of the tree as it matures.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
