Flowering Dogwood Grows In Utah!
There are several varieties of Flowering Dogwood that will grow in Utah - Cornus florida and Cornus kousa, to name two. In other climates, these spring bloomers can grow to be 20 or 30 feet tall. In Utah, however, they seem to stay much smaller. I have only ever seen them reach 10 or 15 feet in height. They are gorgeous when they flower and are a great addition to the spring garden. Flowering Dogwoods should be planted as a focal point near a walkway or outside a window where their delicate flowers can be enjoyed in late April and early May.
