What Kind of Tree Is This?

May 11, 2012

spring

I planted this tree years ago. It was from the Arbor Day Society, in a bundle of bare root trees. Unfortunately, the label had fallen off some of the trees. So I have NO IDEA what I have here, lol! Anyone have a guess?

Flowering Tree

I love the little saucer-shaped flowers. The tree had more of them a few weeks ago. It was quite pretty.

I’d sure like to know what kind of tree it is. If I recall correctly, it’s an ornamental that will grow about 15 to 25 feet tall. That’s all i know! Oh, and the flowers bloomed in mid-April.

    This is dogwood for sure, is it not? Can’t see the leaves clearly tho.
    Ok, Wikipedia calls it Cornus Florida ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flowering_dogwood ) , but dogwood is almost certain what that is.

    Cheers!

    The tree IS a dogwood. They grow wild in Louisiana in the central part of the state where I’m from. I now live in the southern part of the state and want to try to grow one in my yard here. They’re beautiful.
