A great dogwood for wildlife. The very showy white flowers in May turn into an array of white, purple and blue fruit in June/July. They are a favorite to birds. The bark is also attractive with its maroon color. You can use this shrub in difficult planting sites near rivers or wet areas.
Very unique blue-green leaves twist out of the ground in a spiral. The purple/pink flowers add 10-12 weeks of interest from start to finish. The clusters nod over the fun foliage in early summer and then open fully several weeks later.
