The common name for Cornus alternifolia, Pagoda Dogwood, comes from the graceful, horizontal branching habit of this small tree. Golden Shadows™ is even more striking with its 4in, iridescent lime-green leaves, broadly edged in gold and fragrant, white clusters of flower bracts. Dark blue fruit appears later and is much appreciated by songbirds. The foliage turns a reddish purple shade in fall. 'Wstackman' PP 11,287
The genus Cornus is a member of the Dogwood family and one that gardeners often look to for ornamental plants. The species are mostly shrubs or small trees that sport opposite leaves and usually produce a showy bract that surrounds the true flower and adds greatly to its effect. For attractive color in winter, look to the stems of C. sanguinea or C. sericea.
