‘Appalachian Spring’ Dogwood is a native ornamental tree that was found growing wild at the Camp David Presidential Retreat on Catoctin Mountain in Maryland where it exhibited strong resistance to anthracnose, a disease that has devastated the dogwood population. It grows 15 to 20 ft. in height and spread.
