Catalog as of January 02, 2016


(Cornaceae - dogwood family)
About 45 species of herbs, shrubs, and trees of worldwide distribution. Dogwoods are widely used in landscapes for their beautiful flowers, appealing growth habit, attractive foliage, showy fruit, and winter color and form. Birds relish the fruit of many dogwoods, and a few species produce fruit that is eaten by people. The wood of some species is exceptionally hard and strong,. Dogwoods got their name in the Middle Ages from the practice of using the wood for skewers or "dogs".

alternifolia decid tree • ht 15-25' • zones 3-7

pagoda dogwood; alternate-leaved dogwood

native, fragrant, screen, wildlife, part shade - shade
e US

This small, native tree is worthy of a place in the landscape. Pagoda dogwood derives it name from the spreading, horizontal branches which give the tree a tiered, architectural look. Bears flat clusters of fragrant, lacy, creamy white flowers in late spring which in late summer become decorative clusters of dark purple fruit. The fruit is eagerly consumed by birds, leaving behind sprays of bright red fruit stalks which are themselves ornamental. The fall foliage color is burgundy to maroon, muted but attractive. In winter, the distinctive form of the tree, coupled with its lustrous brown to purple stems and smooth, citrus tree-like bark add garden interest. Prefers cool, moist, acidic soil, in full sun or light shade. Does not like hot, dry locations. The tree has a tendency to lean toward the light if it is strongly directional. This tendency may be avoided by careful siting of the tree or by training the tree while it is young.

n N Amer

Bunchberry is a true dogwood, and in flower, foliage, and fruit it much resembles an exquisite miniature version of a flowering dogwood tree. The shiny dark green leaves of this beautiful ground cover change to red in the fall. Small, striking white flowers contrast with the dark foliage from May through June, followed by showy scarlet berries which remain on the plant until eaten by birds. In its favored environment of moist, acidic soil rich in organic matter bunchberry can spread, slowly, to form an elegant, carpet-like ground cover. Prefers a cool environment and part shade - an excellent choice for planting under pines and other acid-loving evergreens. Fairly exacting in its requirements, yet once bunchberry is established in a suitable location it is rugged, long-lived, and requires little care.

kousa dogwood; Asian flowering dogwood

native, edible fruit, hedge - screen, wildlife, sun - part shade
Japan, Korea, China

An exceptionally beautiful small tree. Resembles our native flowering dogwood, Cornus florida in the general size and shape of the tree, having a pleasing tiered structure with horizontal branches and neat foliage. The showy white flowers also resemble those of our native dogwood. Cornus kousa, however, flowers later, in June here, after the tree is in full leaf. A mature specimen in flower is a glorious sight. The white flowers develop a shell pink color as they age, and persist for weeks. In fall the fruits, which look rather like long-stemmed cherries, turn bright red. A tree laden with ripe fruit is so attractive that it is difficult at times to decide whether the tree is more ornamental when in flower or in fruit. Furthermore, the fruits are sweet and edible, and are also enjoyed by birds. Cornus kousa is also considered more cold hardy and more resistant to pests and diseases than our native flowering dogwood.
