Red Osier Dogwood - Cornus sericea
Red Osier Dogwood
2 to 4 ft. trees
You might first notice this native plant in winter, when its blood red stems contrast beautifully with the snow. Red Osier stays low; usually topping out at 4-5 feet in height. It does well in most soils, but is particularly well adapted to wet areas. Will sucker and spread if allowed to.
