Red Osier Dogwood Fascines
Cornus sericea fascines grow medium to large and are best grown in damp soil. It is a fast-growing upright shrub that can grow anywhere from 7 to 10 feet high and wide. Its height can increase to over 24 inches in one year. This attractive plant best suits a landscape that will show off its dark red or purplish-red stems. During the late spring and early summer, the red-osier grows yellowish-white flowers. In the late summer, it grows little white berries. The leaves of a red-osier are a medium-green color.
They measure anywhere from 2 to 5 inches and are an oblong to orate shape. It attracts several species of birds (including wild turkeys, woodpeckers, and catbirds) and butterflies. Many birds are attracted to the berries of the red osier and often use the plant as shelter. Other wildlife animals, such as deer, rabbits, and chipmunks, are attacked by its twigs and foliage. Red-Osiers are highly favored, not only because they are versatile but also because of their hardiness. Even though this plant prefers wet soils, it can also adapt to drier soils.
Red Osier Dogwood Fascines, Cornus Sericea is a Bird Attracting Berry Producing Shrub
Although the scrubs are versatile, they need at least four hours of full and direct sunlight. They will grow in the shade but much slower. Also, they have to be pruned yearly to keep them in their best shape and look attractive. Red-osiers are beautiful for landscaping purposes, and their stems are also commonly used for weaving baskets. Some Indian tribes also used these plants as a way to slow bleeding, cure colds, and as a substitute for tobacco.
