Unique Dogwood with Spring and Fall Interest
The Satomi Dogwood is an outstanding ornamental for spring color and fall interest. It would look terrific in the center of a garden bed with lower plants to compliment it. It could also stand alone in your front yard as a focal point to draw the eye.
This is a great choice for your yard as the spring blooms come a bit later in the season. When your other spring-blooming plants are beginning to fade, your Dogwood will just be getting started.
This extension of your yard's spring glory will begin with clusters of 4-petaled, delicate pink flowers that stand out amid the landscape plantings. As the blooms fade, the pointed, ovate leaves become prominent giving your Dogwood a lush green appearance for the summer months.
The multi-stemmed growth is horizontally-inclined, creating a lovely symmetry and low canopy. The bark is grey and peeling which will draw your eye during the winter months. As fall approaches you'll see your Dogwood's foliage change to a deep red that will certainly stand out amid the usual lighter red hues.
In addition to the ornamental qualities of your Satomi Dogwood, you'll enjoy the large, raspberry-like berries. Birds will flock to your yard to enjoy a treat from your Dogwood, but you can also sample them for a unique, natural snack. While not as tasty as other berries, the Dogwood berry is sometimes enjoyed primarily for its juice.
Satomi Dogwood has a lot to offer as an ornamental planting. Year-round interest and even edible fruit for humans and wildlife make this an outstanding choice for your landscape.
