This wood has been prized by both the ancient Druids and Native American Magical communities. Dogwood was one of the famous Wandmaker Garrick Ollivander’s personal favourites, and I have discovered why. Matching a wand made of Dogwood is always entertaining. Dogwood wands are mischievous and quirky; they have playful, tricky natures and insist upon matching up with those who can provide them with scope for excitement and fun. It would be quite wrong, however, to deduce from this that dogwood wands are not capable of serious magic when called upon to do so; they have been known to perform outstanding spells under stressful conditions, and when paired with a suitably clever and ingenious witch or wizard, can produce dazzling enchantments. The deep rich purple-brown coloured Dogwood is dense and fine-grained, hard and durable. Wands made from it will share this resilience in their nature. An interesting foible of many dogwood wands is that they refuse to perform non-verbal spells, and they are certainly the noisiest of all wand woods. Dogwood wands are, in my opinion, among the most handsome of all woods.
