Roughleaf Dogwood Live Stakes Description

 Rough leaf dogwood is a fast-growing, ornamental, deciduous shrub or small tree noted for its beautiful, creamy white clusters of flowers and hard white fruit. 

The flowers are attractive to butterflies and insects that feed on their nectar. 

Rough leaf dogwoods Blooms attract birds, squirrels, rabbits, foxes, and deer.

In their native habitat, rough leaf dogwood can be found in swamps, marshes, and along the banks of ponds and streams. They may appear as a single tree or thickets and provide excellent nesting cover for birds. Rough leaf dogwood is often used in conservationist projects for erosion control. 

  This perennial has dark, green-veined leaves, which turn an attractive deep red in autumn. The leaves are oval, their upper surface rough to the touch - hence the name "rough leaf" - whereas the lower surface of the leaves has a velvety feel. The Latin name, Cornus drummondii, was given in honor of Thomas Drummond, a naturalist, and native of Scotland, who undertook a nearly two-year effort to complete a botanical survey of Texas where he came upon this shrub. Although he died before the survey was completed, many of his collected plants were redistributed throughout Europe.
