A Dogwood Blooms in Siskiyou County

I've been told that though our local commercial garden centers will stock dogwoods, the plant tends not to bloom here in Siskiyou County. Well, my little dogwood has proved the naysayers all wrong. Though it did not bloom last spring (one year after planting), look at it now! All I can account for is: used coffee grounds, water, shady to partial sun lawn placement, and hope.

Yea for the coffee grounds! Looks really pretty and the petal edges are more pink than mine. I do love a dogwood.
