Silky Dogwood – Cornus amomum (6-12″)
Also known as Pale Dogwood and Swamp Dogwood, this shrub has early season creamy white flowers that give way to attractive blue fruits that are a favorite of birds. This species reaches a mature height of 10 feet and does best in full to part sun and medium to wet soil. Consider the silky dogwood for moist woodlands, naturalized areas, or sites near streams/ponds. It is also effective for erosion control.
