  1. Great small flowering tree for our yards

    For this edition of Garden Journeys, YNN's Terry Ettinger introduces us to a small flowering tree for our landscapes, Cornus kousa or kousa dogwood. It's great for Upstate New York yards, even though it's native to Korea, China and Japan. It's closely related to our native Cornus florida.

  2. Different dogwoods dazzle the eye - Sat, 06 Jul 2013 PST
