Redosier Dogwood (Cornus Sericea Flaviramea) 10 seeds (#615)

Cornus sericea, commonly known as red twig dogwood or red osier dogwood, is an upright-spreading, suckering shrub. With the exception of the lower midwest and deep South, this species is native to much of North America where it is typically found growing in wet swampy areas, wetland margins or along lakes and rivers. Ovate to lanceolate, medium to dark green leaves acquire interesting shades of red to orange eventually fading to purple in autumn.
This variety has yellow stems.
Tiny, fragrant, white flowers appear in flat-topped clusters in late spring, with sparse, intermittent, additional flowering sometimes continuing into summer. Flowers give way to clusters of whitish (sometimes with a bluish tinge) drupes in summer. Fruit is quite attractive to birds and is generally considered to have as much if not more ornamental interest than the flowers.
'Flaviramea' is a yellowtwig dogwood cultivar. It is a compact shrub which grows to a maximum size of 2 m tall by 2 m wide with a spreading, stoloniferous habit. The outstanding ornamental feature of this plant is its bright yellow winter stems.
Excellent massed or as a specimen. Effective in shrub borders where plants can be combined with evergreens or a contrasting color of redtwig dogwoods for interesting winter contrast. Also effective in naturalistic plantings in moist soils where plants can be allowed to spread and form thickets. Plants perform very well in wet locations such as low spots or along streams or ponds where spreading roots can help combat soil erosion. May also be used as a property line screen.
