From the state site: Virginia designated the flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) as the official state floral emblem in 1918. The dogwood is a small, deciduous tree with graceful branches that bloom in spring with large showy flowers (usually greenish-white, sometimes pink or yellow). The dogwood develops red berries in autumn, and the leaves also turn a deep red before falling for winter.
