CORNUS stoloniferaSpring1054
Red Osier Dogwood1-3m  Zone: 3
For winter interest, this is surely our best native Cornus, displaying striking crimson twigs that color the landscape even in the bleakest winter. Understandably, it is the parent of a slew of hybrids. Found in moist areas, with a native range extending over much of North America, it is a spreading, many branched shrub, covered in spring by large clusters of creamy-white flowers, which attract butterflies. These produce whitish berries, with a blue tinge in mid to late summer. Many birds are attracted to this species as the berries provide food and the dense, twiggy nature of the plant is perfect for nesting and hiding. The leaves turn from reds to purples in the fall and the shiny, smooth red twigs, which give the plant its name, turn brilliant in cold weather and look striking against a snowy winter background. The young branches, (osiers) of this shrub have been used by Native American Indians in making baskets and the bark of the stems has been traditionally collected to make a red dye. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.
