Yosemite Dogwood in Bloom

  Date Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

Yosemite National Park is loveliest in May when the waterfalls are pouring over the canyon rim and¬ Western Dogwood (cornus nuttallii) are blooming.¬ ¬ These flowering deciduous trees are most spectacular along banks of the Merced River between El Portal and Yosemite Valley.¬

Hundreds of white leaves, called bracts, give the impression of flowers.¬ The bracts contrast with the deep green colors of late spring foliage and are particularly stunning when reflected in the dark, still waters of the Merced River.¬ This annual show happens only in May each year.¬ To make a reservation in a Yosemite lodging to see the display,¬ visit www.yosemitemariposa.com¬ and click on “Places to Stay.”
