Red Osier Dogwood Live Stakes Description

Red Osier Dogwood Live Stakes, Cornus Sericea is a Beautiful, Red, Deciduous Bush 

Red Osier Dogwood Live Stakes — red dogwood or red stem dogwood— is a beautiful, red, deciduous scrub. This scrub grows medium to large and grows 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 is suited to 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 produces 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. The red-osier is attractive to several species of birds (including wild turkey, 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 Osier Dogwood Live Stakes, Cornus Sericea Prefer Damp or Wet Soil

 

Even though this plant prefers wet soils, it can also adapt to drier soils. This tree grows nicely in Hardiness Zones 3-8. 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. These trees 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.

    Ordered 50 - 1’ to 2’ live stakes for an erosion control project. The delivery came with a nice bundle that was easily planted. We’ll see this fall how they turn out.

    Stakes all came in as expected and are now in place. I will only know in the spring if they take. But all good so far.
