Cornus sericea baileyi
Red Twig Dogwood
This is the classic red-twig dogwood with brilliant bright-red winter stems which are particularly showy against our northwest grey skies. Tiny flat clusters of white flowers appear in late spring followed by white berries in late summer and early fall. The fruit is quite attractive to birds. It tolerates damp or dry soils, as well as that difficult combination of winter-wet-summer-dry locations.
- » Blazing red stems which glow against winter snow, ornamental fruits, shrubby sprawling habit, suckers much less than the species
- » Abundant magnificent powder blue berries in late summer
- » Pointy leaves turn an outstanding brick red in fall
Incredibly attractive & vigorous shrub
