Flowering dogwood in autumn

The flowering dogwood which dapples the woodlands with white in the springtime shows these red berries and purple leaves in the autumn. This flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) is on the South Street side of the public library. It's not wild, it was planted there when they built the place over fifteen years ago. The landscaping was supposed to use native Indiana trees and plants, and a lot of it is still around. Inside the library on file they have a diagram of the landscaping plan which shows the names of the plants and their location on the library grounds. It is not completely accurate but it shows this dogwood in the place you see here. This picture was taken October 16, 2009.
