Cornus (Dogwood)

Beautiful blooms, foliage, fruit, and bark

Cornus (dogwood) make excellent ornamental plants for either their beautiful large clusters of spring blooms in shades of white, pink, or yellow, or for their attractive foliage (some are evergreen) and brilliant winter bark. Available in a wide variety of forms, including trees, shrubs, and ground covers (bunchberry), cornus are versatile and tend to be easy to grow. The lovely blooms are followed by red, purple, black, or white bird-attracting fruit, depending on type, and the various leaf colors and shapes mean there's something for every garden.
