Silky Dogwood
from $20.90
 Silky Dogwood Can Add Beauty to Your Garden  Silky dogwood (Cornus amomum) is a medium-sized, deciduous, blooming shrub typically growing along eastern United States streams. Its tiny, cream-colored blossoms hold sweet nectar that attracts azure butterflies and bees as the weather warms up. Clusters of flowers begin to bloom in late spring, and they stay nestled among the plant's light green leaves well into the summer. Just before fall, the leaves darken, and the plant begins to yield drupes that are a favorite food for birds, like cardinals, flickers, and thrushes. As the temperatures drop, the plant's leaves turn red. Eventually, the leaves drop to the ground, revealing the shrub's burgundy-brown branches.  In its native state, Cornus amomum tends to grow wild and form thickets that make excellent nesting areas for small wildlife. When adapted to domestic settings, the plant works best as an ornamental shrub in an informal garden. Cornus amomum works well in wetter, shadier areas of your home landscape, and it's also an excellent plant for managing soil erosion. The shrub grows best in moist wet, rich, slightly acidic soil that is well-drained. Since the plant serves as pollinators' food source, fertilization is often not recommended. Proper care and attention to the soil composition will encourage your plant to produce abundant blooms and fruit and maintain a vibrant color. Silky Dogwood (Cornus amomum) Needs Careful Pruning To Keep It Looking Its Best Gardners should trim away suckers and dead branches to maintain a healthy look. Pruning away the oldest stems just before spring will encourage the new growth of colorful red stems. Cutting unwanted growth will help the plant keep its shape as the years pass.  When your shrub is newly planted, it is essential to water it weekly until its root system becomes well-established. Once the shrub takes hold, it will naturally draw sufficient moisture from the air and ground so long as it is in a moist, shaded area.  Silky dogwoods are frost-hardy plants that grow well in the southern, central, midwestern, and western regions of the United States. They are lovely, functional plants that keep your garden fresh all year. Buy Silky Dogwoods Online At TN Nursery
