RED OSIER DOGWOOD
Red Osier Dogwood is a shrub which grows 2–3 meters (6–8 ft) in a cascading shape. When grown along a shoreline it produces beautiful white flowers and blue berries, which are a food source for songbirds.
The shrub forms large clusters of white flowers in May–June. The bright red twigs are a beautiful addition to the winter landscape.
The flowers provide nectar for pollinators. Mammals and birds feed on its fruit, twigs, and leaves. Photo credit: Bill Moses
