Wooden Surface

Swida (Cornus) racemosa

Grey dogwood is one of our favorites for fence-line plantings or garden borders. A small-to-medium sized shrub that blooms well in full sun and able to handle well-drained to moist soils, Grey dogwood has muti-season interest.


The flowers are reminiscent of certain hydrangeas, with a full triangle shape of white blooms. As the blossoms fade, large, white, berry-like drupes form on bright red twigs, which maintain their color as the birds pick them clean and the leaves fall, fading to a rich brown color as winter comes.


ECO-TYPE: grown from seed collected in New Hampshire. Started by New Hampshire State Forest Nursery.
