    Red Dogwood Bush

    Posted by Shannon on Nov 28 , 2020

    I received the package containing 4 bare root plants as scheduled but only two of the plants were labeled and I am not well enough experienced to tell the plants in their bare root state apart. One plant was labeled Dogwood, the other labeled Elderberry the two remaining were unidentified.

Description

Red Osier Dogwood - Cornus sericea is a Flowering Native Perennial

Red Osier Dogwood derives its name from its smooth vibrant red twigs which are most noticeable in the winter after leaves have fallen off. Depending on the season, it can have flat clusters of white sweet-scented flowers, white berries, and green to red-orange colored leaves. This hardy shrub is native to zones 2 to 9, and quickly reaches a height and width of six to eight feet. This flood resistant shrub loves moisture, full to partial sun, any type of soil, and most temperatures as long as it is not hot and dry. In gardens, it is used as a screen, and to attract birds and other Wildlife.

 Red Osier Dogwood Fares well and is Ideally Planted Near Downspouts 

Red Osier Dogwood is a Flowering Plant and is native throughout northern and western North America from Alaska east to Newfoundland, south to Durango and Nuevo León in the west, and Illinois and as far east as Virginia. Red Twig Dogwood is very similar to the Silky Dogwood in terms of planting conditions, just like the Silky Dogwood shrub it would fare well and be ideally planted near a downspout disconnected as it is very tolerant to Seasonal Flooding, so most Boggy and Wet Woodland areas would be best for a Red Twig Dogwood Shrub however it is adaptable to most soils but is very Intolerant to Drought and Restricted Water Conditions. Red Twig Dogwood is often used to stop riverbanks eroding because its Root System provides Excellent Soil Retention. The Plateau Indians often ate the Berries it grew to cure Colds, and to Slow Bleeding, It would be best to let the Wildlife engage in the consumption of these Berries.

 They look amazing when placed in a garden or natural area. They can be seen rising in wooded areas where lighting and soil conditions are right for them.

 A native of North America, red-osier dogwood is a shrub primarily cultivated for its striking red stems that give color to the garden in winter. Its bold red stems can accentuate when grown in conjunction with evergreen trees or shrubs as a background. The interest of the plant extends beyond winter. It features clusters of white four-petaled flowers in late spring to early summer, bunches of white berries later in the summer, and bright yellow to purplish-red foliage in the fall. Songbirds are also attracted to its berries and butterflies to its blossoms. It is a fast-growing shrub that spreads freely, reaching between three and nine feet in height. Its spreading habit makes it well suited to use in hedges and borders, and it can also be naturalized for a decorative thicket, and erosion control along slopes. 

  Red-osier dogwood is adaptable to a wide variety of soils and is especially amenable to wet soils. Where it tends to occur in nature; it can be grown along pond banks and streamsides. For best winter color, cut back some of the older stems to the ground in late winter or early spring. It's hardy from Zones 3 to 8.
