First Editions® Cayenne Dogwood

Cornus amomum 'Cayenne'

Height: 6-8'
Width: 8-10'
Exposure: Full Sun
Zone: 4-9

This selection stands out because the bright red stems shine all winter, even in the south. Fresh green foliage looks good all summer and porcelain blue berries form in late summer. Plants spread by suckers and have good orange-red fall color. Appears 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.
