Tree ID please
A friend has asked me what their young tree is but im really not sure...initially i thought a Magnolia variety but the leaves are not any help gratefully recieved




it is a lovely specimen.
I was thinking of one of the Cornus but not sure.
could you take a close up photo of the flowers and some leaves.

I think you are right Eileen; it's a Cornus but there are several varieties with creamy white flowers. Maybe Florida or Pagoda. Give it time to grow into itself.

As already said, a close-up would give a better idea. From the distant look, Eddie's White Wonder comes to mind. I have to admit that I prefer Cornus to Magnolia every time.

The label for the tree has been found and it is indeed......
Eddies White Wonder, so very perceptive of you thanks...and yes Magnolias present too many downsides...
