Dogwoods. I've seen acres of the things in municiple plantings and on new estates.

And so often 'groundsmen' cut them back in the autumn so losing the gorgeous winter colour - I had to keep an eye open for the groundsmen visiting my workplace and keep them away from the dogwoods, promising that I would cut them back at the right time. In the end we laminated a notice saying Do Not Prune and hung it on the branches every autumn!
