Snow Lace® gray dogwood (Cornus racemosa 'Emerald')
KOR-nus rass-ih-MOE-sah
Genus:  Cornus
This native shrub dogwood is more compact than the species with semiglossy, emerald green foliage and showy, white fruit. Purple fall leaf color and rosy pink pedicels make this gray dogwood a fine choice for the woodland edge. Its silvery gray bark in winter adds interest into another season. White flowers in the spring add to the list of what it offers. Plant this dogwood in the landscape where it will be seen in the fall and winter. It rarely suckers.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  This cultivar of a U.S. native offers showy fruit, purple autumn color, and attractive bark.
Care:  Provide full sun to partial shade and, preferably, moist soil. It will tolerate drought.
