The Silky Dogwood is genuinely a four-season shrub that creates thickets by growing roots where stems are in contact with the ground. The growth rate of this plant is considered to be moderate to reasonably fast growing, and it is deciduous, meaning it loses its leaves in the winter. Though this plant is versatile enough to exist in most conditions, it prefers wet soils and moderate sunlight.
It is a beautiful shrub for landscaping and requires very little care. The blossoms that form in early summer are white with yellow centers. These flowers give way to dark blue berries that attract a wide variety of wild birds to your yard. The stems of the plant turn a reddish color in the fall which provides an attractive look once the leaves have fallen.
