Kelsey's Dwarf Red-Osier Dogwood

Cornus sericea 'Kelseyi'

SKU
04470
A dwarf dogwood with a low, compact form and lush green foliage that perfectly foils less attractive bases of larger shrubs. Its neat, rounded shape works well in mass plantings and border foundations. Excellent for erosion control on steep slopes. Bare red stems provide striking seasonal color to dormant winterscapes. Deciduous.
