Noteworthy Characteristics: A vigorous, very adaptable, hardy deciduous shrub growing to a height of 5 to 6 feet with comparable spread. Fine textured, compact, rounded form. Center leaf color is a subdued grayish green with an irregular creamy-white outside margin. The small fruit, which appears in June to July is whitish or slightly blue tinted and relished by birds. Plant in full sun but also a nice color touch to gardens planted in lightly shaded areas. Will thrive in a wide variety of soils from wet to dry, acid or alkaline. Drought tolerant once established. This variety of Dogwood comes vibrantly to life in the fall as its leaves drop and the stems gradually turn to a rich, deep, blood red which remains through the winter to provide a striking accent where shades of brown dominate. The vivid red branches are handsome in a winter vase. For best winter impact, plant in the foreground with evergreens as a backdrop. Zones 3-7, Height: 5-6 Feet, Spread: 5-6 Feet.
