Cornus ammomum-Silky dogwood


SKU: coam Category:


Forms thickets along shaded stream banks and wooded wet areas. I have several patches that grow along my road and they always produce large amounts of attractive blue drupes (fruit). Birds and other critters must really like them because the fruit disappears quickly after ripening. This is a great example of a plant that creates both habitat and food. The dense thickets are wrapped in a cloak of leaves during the growing season rendering birds almost invisible. Branches tend to grow outward and downward from a multi stemmed axis, making a complex three dimensional shelter. Grows to about 6ft-8ft. Blooms in late June. One of three species of our native thicket forming dogwoods; red-osier, and gray are the other species.

2 gallon pot-15in to 18in height, $30 each
