Himalayan Dogwood. This bushy evergreen tree comes from China and the Himalayas and can grow to 30 ft. high. Its minute flowers, surrounded by 4 conspicuous, creamy, sky-facing bracts, appear in late spring and early summer. The pendent rose and apricot pink-tinted fruits that follow are an important part of the plant's decorative character. The leathery, oval, gray-green leaves are paler underneath. Will tolerate coastal winds. Great for windbreaks or decorative screens.
