Silky Dogwood Live Stakes


Silky Dogwood Live Stakes: Cornun amomum live stakes, or the silky dogwood, are an excellent way to fill in wet, slow-draining, watery landscapes with an attractive moisture-loving flowering shrub. TN Nursery recommends silky dogwood live stakes to prevent soil erosion in a slow-draining natural area or low-lying flood plain. Silky dogwood live stakes are an ideal feature for a water garden.


Besides preventing soil from eroding, silky dogwood seedlings will become lovely shrubs with creamy-white clusters of flowers in the spring and small summer berries.


Silky dogwoods are a native species from the rivers and swamps of the eastern and central United States. They are drought-tolerant, heat-tolerant, and compaction-tolerant. Moreover, they don't mind occasional flooding. They will also grow in the full sun or a partially sunny location.


The plant takes its name from the fine, silky hairs on the stems.


What Are Silky Dogwood Live Stakes?


Live stakes refer to cuttings that you plant directly in the ground. Here's how the process works.


An arborist or horticulturist will cleanly cut select branches from a shrub or tree, usually during a dormant phase. The cutting, or stake, goes directly into the ground in the desired permanent location. It will develop roots, strengthen, and grow into a viable shrub.


For many plants, this procedure occurs during the early spring. But some, like silky dogwood live stakes, are less fussy.


Silky Dogwood Live Stakes Grow Into a Lovely, Carefree Shrub


Silky dogwood seedlings will develop into a carefree, charming shrub with a wild, untamed feeling. It will reach a mature height of around twelve feet and attain a similar width.


As the silky dogwood live stakes become shrubs, the leaves will emerge oval, approximately three inches long, and opposing on the stems. The top of each leaf will be glossy and deep emerald green, while the underside will have a pale silvery green.


The flowers will steal the limelight every spring with their creamy white, large and comprised of clusters of multiple tiny blossoms.
