Description


Red-osier dogwood is a common shrub throughout Minnesota. It is especially abundant in wet meadows, marshes, and swamps, but it does well if planted in an upland habitat. It grows on wet loam, sand, muck or sedge peat. It flowers all summer, and produces attractive white berries that are a favorite with wildlife. The stems are green in the summer and red in the winter.
