Palmer-Kinne Dogwood Collection

This collection focuses on shrubby dogwoods (Cornus sp.) that are selected for their multi-season interest. Further north along Arboretum Road, this collection also contains several kousa and cornelian cherry dogwoods.

Many of our shrubby dogwoods are coppiced (cut down to the ground) each year to ensure new, and therefore vibrantly colored, twig growth.
