Cornus florida
Flowering Dogwood

The showy portions of the inflorescences of Flowering Dogwood are the four extended bracts, which in this case are white, with darker indented apices. Flowering Dogwood usually blooms in mid-April, before its foliage emerges. In this image, the true chartreuse flowers in the center of the bracts are still unopened.
