Re: Problems with dogwoods ?
anyone noted any particular problems with dogwoods dying off.?
Yes, Dogwood Anthracnose is everywhere. Around here, they are
encouraging everyone to plant Redbuds which do have lovely lavender
flowers in the Spring and as they are native to the region, are
disease-resistand and tough as nails.
Folks, however, want dogwoods, so nurseries are trying to develop new
varieties that are more disease-resistant, so if you really want to
replace a dogwood, you probably can.
