If Dogwoods Are Blooming Now, What Happens In Spring?

Q: I can’t believe my dogwoods are blooming now! So what happens in spring?

A: It’s not unusual for dogwoods to bloom lightly in fall. It’s partially triggered by light levels and day length, which are similar now to the spring conditions when dogwoods normally bloom. Only a small portion of the buds open in fall. You won’t likely notice much difference next spring.
