Good evening ladies and gentlemen,

I believe this is dogwood, is that correct?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome! to NGA

The veining is right but hard to tell from one dried up leaf. What did the plant look like? Did you see flowers? Where was it growing?

I am wondering if you are being tested to identify plants by their leaves at school?

Here is a good photo of the back of a Dogwood leaf:

Styrax americanus?

Location would be a big help.

Leaf front, twigs, branches, flowers, fruits. All of these, or some of them would help. Preferably not dried.

On another thread willk97 told us he is in Tallahassee, Florida.
