Silky Dogwood Seedlings Description

Silky Dogwood Seedlings 

Silky Dogwood Seedlings, Cornus Amomum, is a deciduous shrub in moist, lowland conditions. This Tree can reach up to 12 feet in height, blooming in the mid-summer months with its distinctive yellowy white flower. The seedlings of this shrub need to be placed in wet but well-drained soils. The seedlings will survive in partial sunlight but are the best set in partial, nearly complete shade.

For cultivation purposes, the seedlings should be planted with several inches of mulch, shading roots from the summer heat and preventing moisture evaporation. The branches of the growing shrub will need trimming. They are prone to droop towards the ground where they can take root, forming dense thickets.

In the late summer, usually around August, the flowers of the Tree can transform into pearly, blue drupes that resemble berries. The berries aren't for human consumption but are a feast for bird-lovers, attracting an assortment of avian friends.

These seedlings aren't known for their decorative or ornamental qualities but are a great addition to wetland vistas and help combat the erosive nature of streams and ponds.

Silky Dogwood Seedlings are Quick Growing and Produce Berries that Birds Feast Upon

The veins of this Tree's leaves also have a distinct and noticeable curve. This shrub isn't known for its vibrant fall colors, but in specific regions can take on a burgundy tint in late autumn before losing its leaves.

The back of the shrub's leaves, lined with a velvety layer of hair, gives this Tree its silky reputation—the reddish stems and branches add a small dose of color to the dogwood's appearance. At that point, the hearty Tree will usually thrive on its own. 

They are among the most common trees that grow in almost every state. They often have blooms in the spring and summer, but you'll usually notice leaves on these Trees even during the fall before the leaves turn to a brilliant red or purple.

When the Tree showcases its colors in the spring, you'll see white flowers that can sometimes appear light pink. These flowers are often one of the first signs that spring is arriving.  

There isn't a lot of care involved with these Trees. They are happy with sunlight and don't require a lot of water to grow and display their flowers. This Tree can increase from the time they are planted, especially if they are in an area with heavy rainfall. They often grow in zones 5 to 8 and can reach about 25 feet tall if they are not pruned back.

The trunk's diameter can span up to 12 inches, depending on the nutrition it receives. This Tree tends to grow about a foot a year and begins blooming in April or May. The tree branches grow rounded to give the Tree a circular appearance once the flowers bloom.
