White dogwood is a flowering tree that belongs to the Cornus florida species. It is a deciduous tree native to the eastern United States, commonly found in forests, woodlands, and streams. The white dogwood produces showy, four-petaled flowers in the spring that are usually white, although some cultivars may have pink or red flowers. These flowers are followed by small, bright red berries that birds and other wildlife eat in the fall. The tree's leaves turn a vibrant red color in the fall before dropping off for the winter. The white dogwood is a famous ornamental tree for landscaping and is often planted in parks, gardens, and along streets.

White dogwoods typically bloom in the spring, usually in late April or early May. However, the exact timing of the bloom can vary depending on the climate and the specific growing conditions of the tree. Warmer temperatures and earlier springs can cause the tree to bloom earlier, while cooler temperatures and later springs can delay the bloom. In general, the bloom of the white dogwood lasts for about two to four weeks, depending on the weather and other environmental factors. After the bloom, the tree will produce its leaves and begin its summer growth cycle.
