Silky dogwood (Cornus amomum) is a medium sized shrub dogwood, native to the eastern half of the U.S. This shrub ranges in size from 3 to 6 feet tall and wide, and produces arching, red stems. In early summer, white clusters of flowers adorn the plant. The flowers are followed by wonderfully ornamental, blue-black berries that are eaten quickly by birds. Silky dogwood is drought tolerant and wetland tolerant. It is great for wildlife plants, in shrub borders, and hedges.
