Cornus sericea, syn. C. stolonifera



Cornus sericea, syn. C. stolonifera, red osier or red-osier dogwood, is a species of flowering plant in the family Cornaceae, native to northern and western North America. It is a medium to tall deciduous shrub, growing 1.5–4 m tall and 3–5 m wide, spreading readily by underground stolons to form dense thickets. The branches and twigs are dark red, although plants may lack this colouration in shaded areas. The leaves are opposite, 5–12 cm long and 2.5–6 cm wide, with an ovate to oblong shape and an entire margin; they are dark green above and glaucous below; autumn color is commonly bright red to purple. The flowers are small (5–10 mm diameter), dull white, in clusters 3–6 cm diameter. The fruit is a globose white berry 5–9 mm diameter. In Latin sericea means 'silky', referring to the texture of the leaves. In the wild, it commonly grows in areas of damp soil, such as wetlands.
