This plant will have you saying, "Come over, Red Rover!" all year. Really, this plant has it al. It's sure tol please you, your neighbors, songbirds, and pollinators. The Red Rover® Dogwood (Cornus obliqua 'Powell Gardens' PP#27873)—or Cornus amomum subsp. obliqua 'Powell Gardens'—will keep your garden lively as the seasons change.
This native silky is well known for its narrow lance-shaped leaves that celebrate green in the spring and turn yellow, red, and maroon in the fall. These multi-dimensional leaves create quite the display of color when fall comes around.
Not only does the Red Rover® Dogwood grow leaves that you'll love, but it produces blue berries in the fall that keep the songbird singing and full. They won't be the only wildlife that stops by this unique plant.
The Red Rover® Dogwood sprouts clusters of star-shaped white flowers that attract pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds in the summer when it blooms.
So, what do you do with such a versatile and manageable plant? A row of Red Rover® Dogwoods makes a great hedge or native backdrop to a perennial border. This gorgeous plant would even make a brilliant addition to a Rain Garden or bioswale.
For best performance, plant the Red Rover® Dogwood in full sun or partial shade. This plant also thrives in moist soil. Because it grows well in damp soil, it earned the nickname of "swamp dogwood" and was often planted in wet meadows and floodplains.
If your garden is aching for some autumnal excitement, the Red Rover® Dogwood will provide you with unparalleled color and excitement when fall arrives. This plant is also a great way to keep the winged-wildlife in your area happy through summer and fall.
Plant this hardy beauty where you want to add exquisite color and keep a camera nearby to snap a few pictures when the songbirds stop by for a snack.
