Like many flowering plant parts, dogwood floral bracts may show variations in bract shape, color, and other features such as edge and tip coloration during their growth. Young leaves may be more pointy or narrower than mature bracts, for example. Additionally, external factors such as sun, shade, soil (acidity) and weather may affect the bract features. Strong sun and high temperatures may 'bleach' colored tracts of many varieties, some more than others. In some instances, white bracts turn pinkish before dying, or if the weather turns cold. Some pink bracts may appear white in some seasons. Additionally, the famous Fall leaf colorations may vary greatly in different environments and in different years.
