White Flowering Dogwood

  • The most beautiful flowering tree of all, the Dogwood features four showy, white, petal-like bracts that open flat and look like one large, white flower.   About 30 kinds of birds, including ruffed grouse and bobwhite quail, eat its fall red fruit, and rabbits and deer browse its twigs and foliage.

    White Dogwood is the state tree of Missouri and Virginia.
