We're pleased that our red flowering dogwood, grown from a sprig bought at a local discount nursery, has survived (several before haven't), and is blooming! It's still a small tree (5 ft or so), but we're looking forward to seeing it grow up. Hopefully, the honey locust in its vicinity will provide it with some shade in future years.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
