Also known as Western Flowering Dogwood. Pacific Dogwood is the official floral emblem of British Columbia. It is one of only two tree species in the province that is legally protected, the other is Cascara. Pacific Dogwood is relatively common along the south coast, where it grows at elevations below 300 metres (1000 feet) in deep, well-drained soils. Normally rowing to approximately 9 metres (30 fee) tall and 0.3 metres (1 foot) in diameter.

Dogwood flowers from about April to June, and will often bloom again in the early fall. The white clusters of flowers turn into red bead-like berries, making this a colourful ornamental tree. Coastal aboriginal people of British Columbia made stains and dyes from the bark and berries; bows, handles, and hooks from the wood; and drank a mixture of boiled dogwood and Cascara bark to treat ulcers and increase stamina.
