Read the\u00A0supporting details\u00A0then answer the following question. According to the passage, which of the following options best\u00A0identifies the negative result of planting a flowering dogwood?

A It is prone to pest and disease

The answer to this question is explained in the second sentence of the first paragraph. It is true that \u201Cit is the most beloved spring-blooming tree,\u201D but that is not a negative result, that is a positive result. The options that state \u201CIt flowers before leafing out\u201D and \u201CIt requires an abundance of water\u201D can both be eliminated, as those options both refer to the kousa dogwood, not the flowering dogwood.
