An excellent shrubby dogwood form that is one of the best bird attracting plants in the landscape. Very hardy and spreading in nature, this selection tolerates poor, wet soils and works well in group plantings. Flat-topped heads of white flowers appear in June, followed by porcelain-blue-colored fruit that is a bird delicacy.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Cornus amomum

Silky Dogwood does particularly well in moist areas, so would be a great addition to your yard for those soggy areas that are difficult to find good plantings for. Prefers partial shade but will do well in sunnier spots as well.
