Dogwood – Blooming in Fall

Q: My dogwood is blooming again (in August). How can this be?

A: Dogwoods are known to bloom in fall when they get rain after a stressful summer. That said, I don’t think this past summer was very stressful. But who am I to question the motivations of a tree? There won’t be much effect on the number of blooms you get in April so just enjoy what you see now.
