Its very attractive, Tom, almost like its been drawn.
Tom Wilson: Yes, looks almost artificial!
The flowers are so pretty, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Very much like the American Dogwood - which I thought it was when I saw it in the Botanical Gardens, where they have several examples.
It definitely reminds me of the dogwoods I loved seeing each spring while in Atlanta, Tom.

A lovely thing to have blooming outside in the garden
Tom Wilson: Yes, this one is in the Botanical Gardens, but it is quite a small tree, so would work in a domestic garden

A first for me, Tom - it is really very pretty
Tom Wilson: Several examples in the Botanical Gardens - and I saw another in the garden of Het Loo in Holland smile
A bit of a gem Tom

They have an artificial look about them Tom.
Tom Wilson: They do indeed, Chad - but very pretty.

Must be a small tree if a person can bend over it like that.
Tom Wilson: The branches start off quite low to the ground, Louis ;-)
It is a very nice looking little flower.
Tom Wilson: And the tree was covered in them, as you see.
Sweet little flowers, Tom. Like the small dots of red peeking through from the ground cover.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed.

Tom Wilson: Very much like the American dogwood.
Dogwoods can be very beautiful, as clearly evidenced by yourself.
Tom Wilson: Indeed they can.
