Cornus amomum

Silky Dogwood

Medium-sized deciduous shrub found in moist lowland areas, swamp borders, floodplains, shrub wetlands and along streams and ponds. Tiny yellowish-white flowers (showy petal-like white bracts are absent) give way to berry-like drupes that change from white to blue as they ripen in late summer; attractive to birds.
