Dogwood, Red Osier

Size: 12-18”

Age: 1-0 


This shrub grows around 12-24” per year.  At maturity, it averages 7-9’ in height and 10’ in spread. It tolerates a wide variety of soil types including sand, loam, clay, alkaline, or acidic soils. Moisture levels must be moist to wet or wet.

This shrub is prized for its vibrant red stems, particularly for their beautiful contrast against winter landscapes. It produces clusters of white flowers in mid to late spring, provides dense cover, and numerous birds consume the white berries that ripen in fall. The twigs and foliage are browsed by elk, deer, rabbits, and chipmunks.
