Description

Silky dogwood is a deciduous shrub that can reach up to 12 ft in height and thrive in flooded, wetted, and moist conditions

 

It has a distinctive yellowy-white flower that blooms in the mid-summer months. It has tight berries that grow around the flower's seeds and give the seedlings a very high survival rate. The seedlings of a Silky Dogwood tree can be planted successfully once they are 6 inches tall. They do best when planted in rocky soil with solid soil moisture content. The silky dogwood seedlings should be planted within several inches of mulch. The mulch shades the roots from the summer heat and prevents moisture evaporation. The branches shrub will need trimming in the beginning.

 

 

Silky Dogwood Shrubs thrive in wetland environments

 

They are prone to drooping towards the ground, taking root, forming dense thickets. In the late summer, usually around August, the flowers of the silky dogwood transform into pearly, blue drupes that resemble berries. The silk dogwood seedlings aren't known for their decorative or ornamental qualities but are a great addition to wetland vistas and help combat the erosive nature of streams and ponds. You'll enjoy a distinguishable array of features with the Cornus amomum, commonly known as the silky dogwood. Consider its basic shape and location, color, and size; this shrub can grow up to 15 feet and produce tiny flowers in white or deep pink, depending on the cultivar. In winter, the dogwood also provides a stunning contrast against bare branches. The silky dogwood is also known for its distinctive curve to its veins, red stems, and burgundy autumn leaves. If you have a yard and would like to add some flowers or trees, you might want to consider Dogwood or Cherry Trees. These trees are often native to many states around the US and Canada, so you might already know about this tree if you are from one of these areas. These trees can be pretty significant, especially when planting young saplings and allowing them to grow for a few years.
