Cayenne Dogwood

Cornus amomum 'Cayenne'

This native selection stands out because the bright red stems shine all winter, even in warmer winter areas. Fresh green foliage looks good all summer and porcelain blue berries form in late summer. Good orange-red fall foliage. Well-suited to moist areas and is good in shrub borders, massed in moist areas and for wetland mitigation.
