Red-Osier Dogwood

Cornus Stolonifera

Red-osier dogwood is a large, 7- to 9-foot erect shrub best suited where the background, such as evergreens, will show off the dark red winter stems.  Besides attractive, red stems in the winter, red-osier dogwood has yellowish-white flowers that appear in late May to early June,  and bluish-white fruit borne in late summer. Fall color is reddish-purple. This species was formerly known as Cornus stolonifera.
