Outside my children's preschool there is a tree with white flowers that smells horrible! We've wondered if it is a dogwood. I certainly hope not, because I have two to plant in my yard! Please tell me Dogwoods don't smell!

Thanks,

Kristie

I have never noticed any aroma from dogwood trees. I doubt that is what you have.

Good, I was looking it up on the internet, and there have been references to white flowering pear trees smelling foul...I wonder if that's it. Thanks for the input!

Bradford Pears smell awful. That's probably what you have.
