Dogwood trees in bloom around Cary,North Carolina - An enticing colorful feast for the senses.
Dogwood is North carolina's state flower. In Cary and Raleigh Dogwood trees are found abundantly, they display spectacular eye pleasing bloom in Spring, during summer they get covered with green leaves and the same green glow changes into shades of red/orange color in fall. No wonder Dogwood ( Cornus florida) is one of the most popular tree planted to beautify the landscapes. Floral beauty of Dogwood Trees can be enjoyed from end of February until mid of April.
