    I saw a small dogwood at a show last week and didn't write down the name of it. It was so unusual looking. The bracts were large and swirled pink & white. Sound familiar to anyone?

    Thanks, but I don't think it's Rubra. The bracts are more white with the pink 'stirred' in. It's a beautiful tree.

    I spoke to someone who was at the show and was told it is a Pink Flame. I haven't found a picture to confirm, but a description says " lovely white brushed with pink" so I'm going with Pink Flame. Thank you so much for your suggestions.
