Gray Dogwood

Cornus Racemosa

Gray dogwood is a very adaptable, native shrub that is excellent for naturalizing, especially in difficult sites, such as pond and stream banks. Although its suckering, spreading habit makes it impractical for formal plantings, it can be incorporated into the shrub border and useful as a mass planting.  Creamy white clusters of flowers in May are followed by white berries in late summer that are quickly eaten by birds.
