Dogwood Flower

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Dogwood Flower
Dogwood Flower
The Dogwood tree produces both flowers and berries, but neither is exactly what it seems to be. The berries are edible only to birds and small creatures, and are not actually berries at all, but drupes, a fruit more similar to an apricot or cherry. The majority of each blossom is actually a modified leaf, or bracht, which forms the outer perimeter of the true flowers, the small green, red and yellow blossoms in the inmost interior of each "blossom."
