Well-behaved trees that won't take over your yard -- or your neighbor's.

The flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) deserves its accolades, but here's a dogwood that's just as beautiful with far less susceptibility to disease. The flowers (bracts, actually) appear after the leaves emerge. Red fruits persist through fall as the leaves turn reddish-purple. Exfoliating brown, gray and tan bark and a pronounced horizontal branching pattern on older trees strike a dramatic winter pose. Selected cultivars extend winter hardiness to -20 degrees, add weeping forms or produce exceptionally large flowers or fruit.
