Flowering Dogwood, also called Boxwood or Dog Tree, grows along most of eastern and southern North America, as far north as Ontario and Maine and as far south as Texas and the Gulf region. Valued for her hard wood and useful in making all sorts of tools, Dogwood's bark also produces a strong tea which induces sweating and thus aids in breaking fevers, including malaria. An extract made from simmering her bark in water relieves muscle aches. Her first spring blooms serve as signs to nearby tribes that it is time to begin planting corn. Dogwood is lively and helpful, although somewhat vain with the knowledge that her pink or white flowers make her one of the loveliest of trees.
