Article: Not For The Dogs: The History And Culture Of The Dogwood Tree
kls_01 Champaign, IL (Zone 5b) 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!
melody Benton, KY (Zone 7a) I have never noticed any aroma from dogwood trees. I doubt that is what you have.
kls_01 Champaign, IL (Zone 5b) 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!
melody Benton, KY (Zone 7a) Bradford Pears smell awful. That's probably what you have.
kls_01 Champaign, IL (Zone 5b) That must be it! Thanks so much, I was in a panic!
