Red Osier Dogwood
Cornus sericea, Bare root, 12"-18"
Description: Red-osier dogwood is a deciduous shrub that adds year-round interest to any garden. It has wonderful leaf color in fall, red bark that pops in a winter garden, and creamy white flowers in late spring. Give this shrub soil with plenty of organic matter to thrive. It will provide habitat for pollinators and butterflies, and birds love its berries, which range from white to dark blue in color. Drought-tolerant, sun to part-shade/sun.
