-44% Silky Dogwood (Cornus Amomum) 30 seeds (#385)

Attracting both birds and human eyes with its white and blue-violet fruits, silky dogwood is a great plant for a variety of soils and light exposures. This multistemmed deciduous shrub may vigorously become a rounded plant but with spreading branches. It is native to the extreme eastern United States from Massachusetts to Georgia and Tennessee and perhaps can look a bit unkempt. Its bark becomes fissured, the youngest twigs carry reddish brown tones.
The medium or deep green leaves are elliptical in shape with minutely wavy edges. The nearly parallel veins add visual interest and leaves are held opposite each other on the sienna twigs. At summer's start, flattened small clusters of tiny white, four-petaled flowers are seen across the shrub. After attracting insect pollinators the blossoms become pea-sized berries that are mottled indigo or blue-violet with white, perhaps silky gray. Birds quickly strip the shrub of its ripe, nearly black fruits. In autumn the leaves unassumingly become brown via muted tones of purple or dark red.
Plant silky dogwood is full sun to partial shade in practically any wet to average soil that is fertile. It is not a formal-looking shrub, but readily contirbuted to the interst of mixed borders, naturalized woodland gardens or as a hedge or screen. (Source: lern2grow.com)
