Mixing dogwoods

One of my favorite things is the pink dogwood.  I especially love it when there are pink and white dogwoods intertwined.  I think this must be true for a lot of people because in the last few years I've seen this happening more and more and there are quite a few trees I've seen that appear to have white and pink blossoms on the same tree.  It seems to defy logic.  I wonder how they do that.  Plant the two varieties in the same hole?  

Anywho....

It was just something I was thinking about this morning.  Any ideas?

Although I don't have an answer exactly to your question... I do have to agree with the dogwood's being some of the most beautiful trees ever! I came to love them on my mission in Tennessee/Georgia and knew when I left... my life would never be the same! We even had "Dogwood Winter" while I was there... and the frost killed it all! The mixes are my favorites... and I will find out what makes them do that! :)

Thanks Ashley. That'll be cool! When I know how I may be able to put one in my yard like that.

There's this thing called biology that explains variations in a species. ie. I have freckles and no hair on my distal phalanges. Dogwood trees are known for the shape of their limb growth, the extraordinary strength of the wood and their light weight. Perfect for making slingshots. They produce flowers also.

Thanks for that informative? response, Sternlip. I'm glad to see you've taken up Botany. No wait, that was Biology. Ha ha ha!
