Rough leaf dogwood, formally known as Cornus drummondii, is a small, spreading, deciduous tree noted for its olive leaves and pale undersides. This tree is native to the Great Plains and Midwestern regions of the US, and it is used for bordering an area or woodland edges or as a grove for wildlife habitat. The plant can tolerate moist or clay soil. It also thrives well in harsh and dry conditions and grows almost everywhere, either in full sun or partial shade. It is a tough, resilient, and adaptable plant, and some gardeners take advantage of it by turning this plant into a small tree or letting it thrive as a multi-stemmed shrub.

This tree produces tiny white, four-petaled, open flowers during the summer months, followed by clusters of small, round fruits that ripen between August to October. The plant’s foliage is medium-green in hue before transforming into a beautiful burgundy in early fall. The fruit is color white that ripens in late summer and holds into fall. At least forty species of birds are known to feast on the fruits.

Live stakes are a dormant cutting technique of a plant grown directly on the soil, with a single-stemmed plant providing adequate plant cover.

Cut the branches with several buds and nodes, and they will form roots and new dogwood branches.

Some of the benefits you get from these live stakes are affordability, easy maintenance, and safe handling. It is ideal for stabilizing stream banks and is used as a substitute for invasive plants. Leaf growth on stakes in the first growing season is doable; however, good root growth is more important.
