CAYENNE™ DOGWOOD

Cornus amomum 'Cayenne'

Buy Cayenne™ Dogwood online. Cayenne™ Dogwood is a true stand out cultivar because the bright red stems shine all winter, even in the south. Its fresh green foliage looks good all summer and it sports porcelain blue berries in late summer. Plants spread by suckers and have good orange-red fall color. It has been found to be Japaneese beetle resistant in Georgia. Disease resistant. Like its cousins, Cayenne™ is well-suited to moist areas and is good in shrub borders, massed in moist areas and for wetland mitigation.

Mature Height:

6-8 Feet

Mature Spread:

8-10 Feet

Hardiness Zone:
