The first half of April, Oklahoma flowering dogwoods put on a show. We have several dogwoods on the Trinity Woods campus. The native dogwoods (Cornus Florida) bloom before the leaves appear but hybrids of the natives and Kousa Dogwoods (Cornus kousa) have larger blooms among green leaves.
I encourage everyone to get out and experience “the woods” wherever you are in Tulsa. Here is a
photo of one from my front yard flowering with the azaleas. Which type of flowering dogwood
is it? See how many dogwoods you can find on our campus or around town this April!
