Cornus nuttallii

Pacific Dogwood
CORNACEAE, The Dogwood family

It takes hours to get home from work when one is
weaving through neighborhoods,
daydreaming,
stopping to stare at flowering trees.

Luckily it’s light late.

The native dogwood is a large tree, growing up to 50 feet tall, yet it is still an understory tree in these forests of giants. In gardens it is best to plant it where it can have space though. The other dogwood species and cultivars can be easier to grow in the city, but in my opinion it is unmatched in beauty.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
