Gray DogwoodCornus racemosa
This tough, low-maintenance shrub offers subtle year-round beauty. White panicles of flowers brighten the landscape in June. White berries attract many birds in the late summer and early fall. And the reddish-pink fruit stems persist into the winter, adding a nice color contrast to the gray bark.
Gray dogwoods are great for borders, groups and masses. They can also be grown as small trees to be used for foundations, entranceways, borders or specimen planting.
