A hybrid between our native Dogwood – Cornus nuttallii, and Cornus florida, ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’ is a heavily flowering deciduous tree with large, white, rounded bracts (flowers) that appear in spring. Summer foliage is dark green and is followed by rich red fall color. Small, red fruits appear in winter that attract songbirds. This tree has upright, pyramidal growth with slightly pendulous branches. ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’ Dogwood is easy to grow and resistant to anthracnose.
Otto Luyken Laurel: Foliage is evergreen with no fall color. Tiny, cup-shaped, creamy white flowers in upright clusters (racemes to 5” long) bloom from the leaf axils in April-May. Flowers have a powerful aroma. Flowers give way to somewhat inconspicuous black drupes that ripen in mid-summer. This fruit is basically inedible for humans (bitter aftertaste) but is loved by local bird populations
