Cornus sericea (red dogwood)
Butterfly 14 - Spring Azure

Cornus sericea (red dogwood)

Description

An excellent shrub for all seasons! Numerous small white flat-topped flowers appear in late spring, giving way to clusters of white berries in summer. The fruits are attractive ornamentally and popular with birds, too. Red leaves provide autumn color, and the show continues through winter when the dramatic red stems are a striking point of interest. Spreading by suckers to form thickets, Cornus sericea is an excellent shrub for screening, and very moisture tolerant.
