Dogwoods a la Carte

Last February, I wrote about starting Dogwoods from seed.  They're all grown up now.

Well, they think they're all grown up.  They're only eight inches tall.  It was time to go from a six pack to a four inch container.  There are now five flats of seedlings from Blue Shadow, China Girl, Satomi, and Trinity Star.  The Wolf Eye seedlings never made it.  The leaves were all white; they had no chlorophyll.

We've wheeled the flats to a raised bench in a shady area.  Hopefully, they'll have a strong fall growing season.  Many maples at Wildwood are already showing signs of second growth!  Bright red leaves are emerging on many branches.  A welcome sight.
