  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Showy white petal-like flower bracts look really pretty when they appear in late spring and early summer, framed by a collar of rich green leaves. After they fade, they are followed in autumn by a jaunty cluster of bright red berries. This creeping dogwood is an attractive groundcover for the front of a shrub border or woodland garden. It performs best in a partially shaded spot in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to acid soil.

  • Garden care: Incorporate a quantity of composted pine needles or well-rotted leaf mould when planting. Divide large colonies of plants in spring or autumn.

    Comments about Cornus canadensis:

    I use these as a ground covering plant as they contrast well with most evergreen shrubs.
