Perfect for small gardens, Cornus sericea ‘Kelseyi’ (Redtwig Dogwood) is a dwarf, rounded, suckering, deciduous shrub of great ornamental value in the landscape. Fast-growing and adaptable to most soils, including wet soils, it bears a dense foliage of ovate green leaves in spring and summer, creating a nice contrast with the reddish stems. The foliage turns attractive shades of burgundy red in the fall before falling to the ground, revealing the vibrant, glistening red stems. Small clusters of tiny white flowers are rarely produced in late spring. An invaluable addition to the winter garden. Cornus sericea ‘Kelseyi’ can be used as a coarse ground cover or in a shrub border.
