About: The blossoms of the dogwood tree is the official state flower of North Carolina. The tree is synonymous with the South, and this garden in Hayworth Park has at least 35 different kinds of dogwood trees, including Karen’s Appalachian blush and Jean’s Appalachian snow (Cornus florida). The dogwood Grove started with the planting of various Kousa dogwoods, and continues to expand with added cultivars. Beds of bulbs and perennials reveal spring and summer colors throughout the grove.
