Kelsey's Dwarf Red-Osier Dogwood
Cornus sericea 'Kelseyi'
|Description||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.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Keep soil moist.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches only 24 to 30 in. tall and wide.|
|Care||Prefers enriched, moist, well-drained soils but adaptable; tolerates dry conditions and wet soils once established. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Fertilize in spring. Best stem color on young wood; to encourage bright red stems, hard prune one-third of oldest stems annually in late winter.|
