Spring/Fall Color for Wet Soils


Silky Dogwood is a deciduous shrub with ornamental features.  You could effectively use these for hedgerows and windbreaks, or even as a specimen plant.  One would look terrific at the back border of your garden, and they even work well for erosion control.


Your Silky Dogwood has attractive greenish-white flower clusters that appear in flat-topped, 2.5-inch clusters in the spring. The flowers mature to berry-like drupes that begin white but slowly transform to a lovely blue for the fall.


The fruit is eaten by game birds, and is especially important as a source of food for migrating songbirds. The glossy, medium-green leaves are up to 5-inches long with noticeable veins and silky hairs on their undersides (thus this Dogwood’s name). 


The brown twigs likewise have tiny hairs, with the twigs adding a reddish hue for autumn.  After the leaves fall, the brown/red twigs stand out against the brilliant white snow, and present an important source of winter browse for deer and rabbits.


The Silky Dogwood will mature to 8-12 feet tall with an equal spread, but can be trimmed to any size. It has no serious insect or disease issues and is relatively fast-growing.  Silky Dogwood does particularly well in moist areas, so would be a great addition to your yard for those soggy areas that are difficult to find good plantings for. 


Silky dogwood’s beautiful spring flowers, fall drupes and lively bark color make it a charming addition for your home.  Its fast-growing, hardy nature and suitability for even moist soils add even more benefit to this lovely ornamental shrub.

As a lover of birds and fortunate enough to have a large area to plant in, I am well stocked with Silky Dogwoods. They are easy to care for and the wildlife love them.
