Comments: Twigs are dark red when young, fade to gray-green in late spring and summer and trun red again in fall. Can tolerate flooding and is very tolerant to extremely low temperatures. The inflorescense is made up of many small flowers that have no bracts as do other dogwoods. Birds feed on the white berries that mature in late summer and early fall.
