It’s a wonder that more people don’t grow and enjoy Eddie’s White Wonder Dogwood. It’s been commercially propagated and available in the trade since 1955, ten years after it was discovered by Henry M. Eddie, a Vancouver, B.C. nurseryman.
A beauty that will make any installation blossom.
The tree has beautiful white flowers that grow to more than four inches in diameter in the spring. Composed of four to six large, rounded and overlapping bracts, these blooms create a striking display in the spring. Dark green summer foliage is handsome throughout the summer months, and turns to rich red in the fall. Small red fruits decorate its branches in winter.A hybrid of the Pacific Northwest native dogwood, Cornus Nuttallii, and Cornus Florida, it grows taller and has larger flowers than those of the Cornus floida.
It is also easier to grow, more resistant to anthracnose, and generally more adaptable than its other parent, Pacific Dogwood.
Eddie’s White Wonder Dogwood grows to a height of about 25 feet with a spread of about 20 feet.
