Dogwood, Redosier


Cornus sericea

A rapid growing, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub. Redosier dogwood features bright red winter stems. Tiny white flowers appear in clusters in late spring, with intermittent flowering into the summer. Flowers give way to clusters of whitish drupes in the late summer.

Wildlife will browse the twigs, foliage, and fruits. Dogwood is often planted to attract birds, as an ornamental, and is a good secondary plant in windbreaks.
