The Redosier Dogwood, also known as Cornus sericea, is a native North American shrub, widely found in Canada. This deciduous shrub typically grows to a height of 6 to 9 feet with a spread of 5 to 8 feet. It is hardy in zones 2 to 7, making it a versatile plant for various climatic conditions.

Optimal growing conditions for the Redosier Dogwood include well-drained, moist soils. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, with more vibrant stem color typically occurring in full sun. This shrub is particularly adaptable to wet conditions, making it suitable for use in riparian plantings and wetland restoration.

Historically, Redosier Dogwood has been significant in various cultures for its ornamental and practical uses. The plant is renowned for its bright red stems, which provide striking winter interest in landscapes. Native Americans used the strong, flexible branches for basketry and tool-making.

Redosier Dogwood blooms in late spring, producing clusters of white flowers, followed by white or blue-tinted berries in late summer. The berries are a valuable food source for birds and wildlife. This species is also known for its environmental benefits, such as stabilizing soil and providing habitat for wildlife.
