Dogwood - Tree - 7 Gal.

$162.99

Cornus alternifolia

This native tree is hard to find in cultivation but is a true winner for the native landscape because of its ability to thrive in semi-shaded woodland areas and its season to season beauty that other ornamental trees can only envy. Its rounded, somewhat pyramidal head is covered by medium to deep green leaves that whorl around branched providing a backdrop for flattened clustes of small white flowers that bloom from late May into June and fill the woodland with their gentle fragrance. Native insects love the bloom and birds can't get enough of the profuse fruit that follows in fall that starts green, turns red and matures to black. Yellow to purple-red fall foliage color adds to this plant's spleandor and completes and outstanding landscape package!
