Pacific Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) was identified by Thomas Nuttall, a British botanist and zoologist living in the United Stated between 1808 and 1841. In 1834, Nuttall journeyed to Fort Vancouver with the Wyeth American Expedition. His traveling companion was ornithologist John Kirk Townsend. Pacific Dogwood was among numerous plants and trees introduced to the western world by Nuttall. The bark of dogwood contains quinine and was used for thousands of years by Native Americans to treat fever and stomach ailments.
