Colorful, environmentally-friendly native plant.
Exceptional fall foliage is the hallmark of this compact new selection of our native silky dogwood. The clean green foliage contrasts nicely with white flowers in summer, and autumn brings deep purple foliage which gradually changes to luminous red. Blue fall fruit adds to its appeal.
The flowers are a valuable resource for our pollinator populations, and the fall fruit is an excellent resource for songbirds. This is an outstanding plant for moist to damp sites: use it in rain gardens and bioswales. The compact size is ideal for residential landscapes.
