48. Cornus nuttallii x flroida – Eddie’s White Wonder
Scientific Name: Cornus nuttallii x florida
Nativity: Hybridized in the Pacific Northwest
A cross between the western dogwood and the flowering dogwood. Most of the seedlings were lost during a flood in the 1940s. However, one seedling had been moved to an unaffected area, so this is the seedling from which all Eddie’s white wonder have been propagated. The name ‘White Wonder’ comes from the beautiful white blossoms that it displays during the spring.
DBH: 4.0 inches
