Plant Details: Alternate Leaf Dogwood
3 - 9
Alternate Leaf Dogwood
A little known native dogwood with cymes(flathead clusters) of creamy are relished by birds as a food source. Smooth green bark stems change to a wine/burgundy color in sun on this gracefully structured small tree. Species C. alternifolia blooms later and is much more fragrant than the common Florida dogwood. Harder to find in the trade, this tree is a reasonably fast grower to a mature size of 15'High x 10'Wide and is a wonderful addition to any landscape. Our second favorite next to Cornus asperifolia of the native dogwoods.
As always with this species quantities are limited.
