Genus Overview: Cornus

Cornus. The Dogwoods come in many sizes – low growing shrubs to rounded trees. Many have beautiful winter wood, beautiful flowers and berries for wildlife. Most have terrific fall foliage color. They are indispensable in a garden with almost all species and cultivars sporting 4 seasons of interest. All prefer fertile soils that retain some moisture between rainfalls. Many if not all are a presently a botanical Latin taxonomic tangle. In fact, taxonomists have been very busy renaming both trees and shrubs to the point that they have managed to do to Dogwoods what they foisted upon Asters. For the nursery owner the outcome is nothing but a monstrous tangle of confusion for nurseries and customers alike. And as much as I rail against common names I now use the word "aster" as I utilize "dogwood" for the sake and ease of lubricated communication. Ours are being offered under monikers that are currently embraced by most folks in the industry but followed parenthetically with the swanky new names foisted upon us all by the taxonomists... those elusive, ghostly beings who secretly impose as do the FISA court judges in the U.S. (Uh oh, they've begun an FBI folder on me!!!) We take many of our cues from the esteemed Michael Dirr... not regarding FISA courts or the FBI. You know what I mean. All of our offerings are cutting grown.
