White Spring Flowers and Red Winter Twigs
Talk about hot and spicy! First Editions Plants has introduced a new and exciting type of dogwood to the market, Cayenne Dogwod (Cornus amomum 'Cayenne'). This tasty shrub is an update on an American classic.
Dogwoods are well-loved American trees and shrubs. You can count on them for reliable color year in and year out. They are super hardy native plants that thrive without much care all over the country.
Springtime brings fresh green leaves and beautiful white flowers, followed by a summer of thick green foliage and porcelain blue berries. Then in the fall after the orange-red leaves drop you are left with a winter of fire-red stems! These stand out against the greys and browns of winter like red-hot pokers.
This tall and wide shrub (6’-8’ tall and 8’-10’ wide) loves moist areas and is perfect for wetland mitigation. Try them in big masses for a show-stopping winter effect. They are great specimen plants in small gardens, too.
A new classic, Cayenne Dogwood deserves a place in your garden this year. Order yours from us today!
