Ivory Halo Dogwood Quantitative Traits
WHAT: Ivory Halo Dogwood shrubs
WHERE: Loring Elemenary Schoolyard Gardens, North Minneapolis
WHY: There are 5 dogwood shrubs planted behind the sign. The two on the left are not as vigorous (they are shorter, they aren't as filled-out with branches and they don't have as much foliage) as the three plants on the right. They were all planted at the same time and given the same lack of care. Although all three examples I give to explain vigor are quantitative, I think that the lack of leaves is the most noticeable (maybe not in this picture) and therefore the primary difference I see between the same species of tree.
