Double Dog Dare



Double Dogwood, Cornus florida.

The owner didn't know the specific variety name, but said that it came from Hanna's in Birmingham.

That definitely says spring in the prettiest way.

It was strange to have the dogwoods blooming after Easter this year! (But I think I read that it was the earliest Easter in 95 years.)

I really liked this double-flowered one. I'd never seen one before.

That variety is Cornus florida 'Plena.' Double flower! Makes me think of that Wrigley's commercial.

This flowering season is one of the longest in Atlanta that I can remember.

Thanks very much for the name! It's a beautiful tree. Apparently it's not very common in nurseries in this area.

Oh my! I've never seen a double Dogwood. Now how pretty was that? Very :)
