Roughleaf Dogwood



Botanical Name:  Cornus drummondii

Common Name:  Roughleaf Dogwood, Drummond’s Dogwood

Description:  Very pretty, fast growing Texas native shrub/small tree that likes moist areas but adapts to dry areas, prefers part sun to shade, grows 16′ tall and wide, can spread by root suckers to form thickets but those are easily controlled by mowing or pulling if you want a single shrub or tree. The thickets make great hedge rows or for erosion control. Blooms clusters of showy white flowers April through June that provide nectar for many butterflies and pollinators. The flowers then turn to white fruit that at least 40 species of birds eat. This deciduous shrub will give you nice red leaf color in the fall before the leaves drop. These are not deer resistant.

The 3-gallon plants are approximately 4′ tall x 2′ wide not including the container.

Hardiness Zones 5 – 8
