Dogwood Trees - Cornus arboribus
Dogwood or "Dogtree" comes from the word "Dagwood." The flower has four white petals with a purple stain to each corner. The center has several small green pea-like pistils. The flowers can also give a red/rosy pink shade to them. Several Dogwood Tree owners have suggested that the branches sound like a barking dog when the wind blows through the branches. These trees are so beautiful; they are used as ornamental trees. When they are adequately taken care of, Dogwood Trees can grow over one foot per year. They are capable of growing from 15 to 70 feet but are more commonly found in 25 to 30 feet. They are more attractive when planted in pairs. An interesting fact about the Dogwood Trees are the Dogwood berries they give out during winter times. These berries will be sure to attract all kinds of birds. The Dogwood Trees enjoy the partial shade, although they are capable of receiving sunlight all day.
They can adapt very quickly to any soil, whether it's heavy or sandy. Acidic soil would be the best kind of soil to take care of these trees.
Moreover, the Dogwood Trees are tolerant towards droughts, although they do need water now and then during the hot summer days. They can grow in several different climates. They create a beautiful statement to just about any kind of landscape.
