One of the shrubby dogwoods with colored stems. The mid-spring perfect flowers of Silky Dogwood are flat-topped, and white. The blue-black fruits mature in mid-summer and are quickly consumed by birds, squirrels, and other woodland mammals. Leaves of Silky Dogwood are opposite, ovate to elliptical, and have prominent veins that run parallel to the smooth, non-wavy leaf margins. Autumn coloration is often green to chartreuse, but can be reddish-yellow, reddish-orange, or reddish-purple in good years.
