pink dogwood, flowering dogwood

Cornus florida


A spring flowering tree in the eastern United States. There are small disjunct populations in Ontario, Canada (endangered) and Mexico. The dogwood blossoms are commonly white or pink and white. However the color comes from "showy white and pink flower-like bracts, which are actually modified leaves. Dogwood flowers are [...] small yellow-green clusters at the center of the bracts."


In a wooded field on the edge of Springfield, Missouri.
