‘Dogwood Winter’ is a term commonly used to describe a cold snap when the dogwoods are in bloom. They’re looking nice right now after some rainy, warm weather, but a cold snap with up to three nights of near and/or subfreezing temperatures could damage blooms on trees, bushes, and any other Spring vegetation outdoors!
