Silky dogwood starter shrub (Cornus amomum) starter shrub. We like this shrub for it’s blue berries (which birds like) and it’s reddish orange fall foliage. Spring azure butterflies will use it as a host plant. Likes a medium to moist meadow like location. Gets up to 10 ft.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be the stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
