During the summer months, this shrub produces small, white flower clusters that are a natural attracting for butterflies. These flowers give way to long-stemmed drupes that appear in early fall. The berry-like drupes start out in creamy white color but turn into a blue or lavender hue as they ripen. These drupes attract a wide variety of birds all through the autumn months. During the winter months, the twigs of the Silky Dogwood have a stunning reddish/purple hue.

This deciduous shrub is a member of the Cornaceae family that is native to Missouri. It produces showy blooms that attract wildlife and birds. It is relatively resistant to erosion and damage from wildlife such as deer.

Silky Dogwood Shrub is commonly known by the name dogwood and thrives in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 8. This shrub typically grows to heights of 6 to 12 feet, with tiny white flowers that bloom from late spring to early summer. Its twigs are light brownish-purple in color, and the foliage is a vibrant, medium green. It thrives in moist, fertile organic soils in partial shade. Placing 2 to 4 inches of mulch around the roots is recommended during the summer to keep the shrub well hydrated and fresh.

While this shrub is not typically used as an ornamental, it is an excellent shrub for wet landscape settings. If not pruned occasionally, it can become more like a thicket, but it makes an ideal windbreak. It also is an excellent choice for planting beside ponds and streams for erosion control.
