Red-osier (red-twig) dogwood - Cornus sericea (stolonifera)
This dogwood produces white flowers during the end of May or the first part of June. The fruit is white and contrasts nicely with the green foliage. The fall color is maroon for the leaves, but the real color is in the red stems. The stems tend to be the brightest red during the first 3 or 4 years. The best way to maintain the red stems is to cut them off at the ground in early spring before they leaf out.
Mature size: 7-9' high, 7-10' wide
