I really envy you your Dogwood trees and trails. In Ireland the 'summer' is usually too damp and cloudy to get those displays of flower on the flowering dogwoods. To us, 'Dogwood' usually means C. alba and allies which are grown for their winter stems along the motorways.

Thank you for sharing your experiences from another part of the world. We like the stems here as well, and use Cornus alba and Cornus sericea for those purposes too.
