Cornus nuttallii 'Goldspot'
Native to (or naturalized in) Oregon:
- Deciduous tree, to 40 ft (12 m), leaves variegated, streaked and spotted with gold; leaves red in the fall.
- Part shade, best in well-drained, acid soils high in organic matter
- Hardy to USDA Zone 7 According to Jacobson (1996), this cultivar originated as a branch sport which was discovered in 1919 by nurseryman Henry Eddie of Vancouver, British Columbia. It was introduced at 'Eddiei' and later renamed, presumably for marketing purposes, as 'Goldspot'. Mr. Eddie also originated the hybrid Dogwood known as 'Eddie's White Wonder', a cross of C. florida × C. nuttallii.
