Cornus canadensis


Bunchberry

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 7.100.050


One of our most attractive native wildflowers, this woodland plant makes a wonderful groundcover under a canopy of trees, or in any reasonably moist shady area. Single white Dogwood flowers appear in late spring, followed by a colourful crop of scarlet berries in the fall. Good bronzy-red fall foliage colour. Plants go completely dormant in the fall. Spreads slowly by underground runners. Prefers acidic soil. Plan on 10-25 plants/square yard for a reasonably fast fill.
