 Flora :: Trees :. Dogwood Trees

Dogwood trees are from the Genus Cornus and dogwoods are mostly trees with simple, opposite leaves. Dogwood flowers are small and are produced in branched terminal clusters that are sometimes surrounded by showy white bracts. Thus, the so-called petals of the familiar flowering dogwood are actually bracts.

The main economic importance of dogwoods stem from their valuable ornamental species, grown for their attractive flowers, flower bracts, fruits, twigs and stems, and colorful autumn leaves.
