It's Dogwood season here in Georgia--they're blooming everywhere. Most have drifts of snowy white flowers, but there are pink varieties, too. I spotted this beauty in my neighbor's yard. It's a young tree that bloomed for the first time this year.
The Dogwood is hardy in zones 5-9, growing up to 25 feet high and just as wide. In the wild, this native tree grows under the forest canopy and thrives in rich, moist soil. So pick a spot with filtered shade or afternoon shade and water it if conditions are especially dry.
