If so, the easiest thing to do is view them when they're blooming. It is a dazzling display that is truly a riot of color. Right now, the east coast dogwoods are at their peak. There are many different varieties - plant people couldn't resist tinkering with such a showy tree!
A great example of the range of varieties is the contrast between Little Princess and Venus. Little Princess is a dwarf dogwood with big white blooms. It's great for a small patio garden. Venus is a large fast growing tree with .... big white blooms!
Attend Wildwood's Dogwood Class tomorrow and learn much more.
