Come take a guided walk through our extensive Dogwood collection with KBGA Head Gardener, Joy Grissom. With 20 cultivars of our native Cornus florida, 16 distinct species and dozens of varieties other Cornus family members, our Dogwood collection is one of Knoxville’s hidden gems. Not a plant scientist? Don’t worry! This tour will be of interest to anyone with an appreciation for nature’s diversity and beauty.
With the extensive history of the Howell Nursery to guide us, we began our collection of our native dogwoods and their many varieties. Several acres of the former Howell Nursery were designated as the site for our dogwood collections, and with both financial and physical help from the Wolf Tree family, work began in 2011 with irrigation lines and the building of the primary trail. Our collection quickly grew to contain over 20 cultivars of our native Cornus florida, 16 distinct species and dozens of varieties of other Cornus family members.
