Cornus sericea

Commonly known as red osier dogwood, is a deciduous shrub native to North America. Notable for its vibrant red stems, especially prominent in winter, it adds striking color to landscapes. The oval leaves complement the distinctive stems during the growing season. In late spring, flat clusters of small white flowers appear, followed by white berries. Adaptable to various soil types and moisture levels, red osier dogwood is valued for erosion control, wildlife habitat, and ornamental use in gardens and naturalized areas. Its year-round visual appeal and ecological contributions make it a popular choice for diverse outdoor settings.
