Flowering dogwood is a lovely, small understory tree (20-30 ft) with spreading, horizontal branching. Large white flowers (bracts) in late April to early May, followed by clusters of bright red fruits in the fall. The fruit of the flowering dogwood is a valuable food source for a large variety of birds and mammals. Prefers well-drained acidic soils.

Leaves are opposite and simple, with a slightly wavy edge. Flower is actually very small but is surrounded by 4 very showy, white bracts that appear like a large flower (3-4 inches). Fruit is a shiny red drupe, about ½ inch long, and flower buds look like tiny, gray softballs. The gray bark is smooth on younger trees and will develop a scaled pattern as it grows. In the fall, foliage turns a deep, ruby red.
