Rough leaf Dogwood
Cornus asperifolia is a lovely Dogwood species that is often times confused with species drummondii. It forms a large shrub or small tree that will perform well in fast draining soils and will tolerate alkaline soils better than the other dogwoods. It has creamy white flat-head clusters (corymbs)of flowers in early summer. In late summer the corymbs produce clusters of porcelain white berries and beautiful reddish plum colored fall foliage. We have experienced 21 birds species feeding on this species fruits. It is reported by the USDA to support 40 species of birds and great for low open nesting species. Mature size is approximately 10-15' high x 8-10' wide.
