The flowering dogwood (Cornus florida), a popular landscaping tree, is prized for its showy spring flowers as well as its red fall foliage. Dogwood trees grow and bloom over most of the eastern half of the United States and along the Pacific Coast in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 9. Under ideal conditions, the trees can reach a height of around 30 feet, with multilayered branches that can spread out to about 20 feet. ~ Bernard
