Silky Dogwood

Cornus obliqua

Native

Silky dogwood is a large shrub, typically growing 3-5 meters tall and is native to eastern North America.  It performs best in soils that are moist, somewhat poorly drained, moderately acidic to neutral, and in areas that have medium to coarse soils. It is highly tolerant of shade but not of drought-like conditions. Silky dogwood and red osier dogwood look very similar, however they can be distinguished from one another by pith and fruit color.

Leaf

Dark green, ovate leaves with a smooth margin and an acute apex.

Fruit/Seed

Berries are white early in the season and become dark blue later on

Flower

Tiny yellowish-white with 4 petals, found in clusters, flowers in May-June
