Long ago, barkless dogwood tree branches were used as toothbrushes. Isn't that fascinating?Scout Leader Jaggy

Bleach dogwood is a junk item in Fallout 76.

CharacteristicsEdit

Bleach dogwood is a type of mutated flowering dogwood tree once common to West Virginia. Dogwood trees have been a part of human culture over the centuries. Their white flowers were used for proposals during the Victorian era[1], their roots could be used to attract muskrats into traps[2] and their bare branches could be used as toothbrushes.[3] The mutated version continues to be useful in the wasteland as a component used to craft water filters.

Bleach dogwood trees continue to thrive in the Toxic Valley region of Appalachia. Unlike other flora in the area, they have been able to weather the pollution in the area created by the sabotaged Grafton Steel mill. However, they require periodic fertilization using the aerosolizers placed in the derelict farms across the Valley.[4]

When hit by an intercontinental ballistic missile, bleach dogwood turns into gamma dogwood, which yields raw yellowcake flux when harvested.

LocationsEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

According to the Vault 94 greenhouse terminals, the dogwood seen in-game is of the species Cornus florida, or flowering dogwood.[5]
