|This large group of trees, shrubs and ground covers features plants with attractive flowers and foliage, colorful bark and dependable fall color. Dogwoods are often used as flowering accents, architectural screens or mat-like ground covers. Prune out the oldest branches every year to encourage new growth.
This shrub rapidly grows to a large tree covered with oval leaves that are dark green above and silvery green below. Leaves are red throughout fall. White flowers give way to blue-black fruit that birds love.
