Experience the beauty of the American Dogwood (Cornus sericea), also known as Red Osier Dogwood, Red-rood, or Red-twig Dogwood, in your own garden. This deciduous shrub thrives in wetlands, delivering a splash of color with its vibrant red or purplish stems reaching 3-10 ft tall. The ornamental appeal is heightened in fall as the leaves transform into a stunning reddish-purple hue. White flowers bloom in early summer, attracting bees and enhancing biodiversity, followed by white berries. These flowers also offer a stunning contrast against the Dogwood's dark green, ovate or oblong leaves. What sets the American Dogwood apart is its hardiness, capable of surviving down to -30°F and adaptable to any soil of good or moderate fertility, including heavy clay soils. It fast-growing, and its root system and spreading stolons are ideal for soil retention, particularly for waterway bank erosion protection and restoration. This makes the American Dogwood not just beautifying, but also beneficial for your garden ecology and landscape. Native to northern and western North America, let this unique and resilient shrub stand as a testament to the beauty of the American flora in your garden.
