Answer: A good choice for the site is Cornus nuttallii, the Western Dogwood. It's native to northern California and the Pacific Northwest, but will grow reliably in your gardening region. Cornus nuttallii produces attractive flowers in early spring, followed by medium-green leaves which turn yellow, pink and then red in the autumn. It's happy in morning sun and afternoon shade, likes average soil and prefers to be watered regularly during the growing season so planting in a lawn will suit it quite nicely.
