Cornus encapsulates a large group of evergreen and deciduous shrubs and trees. Cornus nuttallii x florida ‘Eddies White Wonder’ is a hybrid of two dogwood species, Eastern Dogwood (Cornus florida) and Western Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii). The hybridization resulted in a superior tree with profuse blossoms, a distinctive growth pattern, and superior disease resistance. The tree has plenty of seasonal interest, with large white bracts (modified leaves that resemble petals) appearing in early spring followed and leaves which turn red in the fall. It is often planted in a row to create a light screen.
Eddie’s White Wonder was hybridized in 1945 by Henry Matheson Eddie, a nurseryman from British Columbia. Most of the early seedlings were lost in a flood in 1947 but fortunately some had been moved, allowing them to be further propagated.
let’s take a second to remember what shangela looked like on her first season.

left: regular growth, right: showing fasciation
Fasciation is a relatively rare condition of abnormal growth in vascular plants in which the apical meristem (growing tip) becomes elongated perpendicularly to the direction of growth, thus producing flattened, ribbon-like, crested, or elaborately contorted tissue.
my life right now consists of answering a lot of questions like this:
A landscape architect is called to a site to determine how to treat a group of plants that is showing signs of stress. Upon examining the plants, the landscape architect observes that some plants’ leaves are yellowing while the veins remain green, while another group of plants’ leaves are either dead or have turned completely yellow. The landscape architecture later determines that the soil contains high amounts of clay and some soluble nitrogen. What is the affliction of the plants that have yellowing leaves with green veins?
- (A) mildew
- (B) leaf spot
- (C) chlorosis
- (D) fasciation
(i mean the answer’s fairly obvious right?)
