Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' flower Vis-UV-IR

Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' flower Vis-UV-IR
Comparison of a Siberian Red barked Dogwood (Cornus alba 'Elegantissima') flower in visible light (top), ultraviolet light (centre), and infrared light (bottom).

The plant has variegated leaves, but the variegation is not easily apparent in ultraviolet and infrared. In infrared the leaves appear much brighter.

The flowers appear much darker in ultraviolet. In infrared the flowers have a similar tonality to how they appear in visible light, except that the ovaries appear as bright as the petals.
