Description Fine Print
 
Cornus canadensis, or bunchberry, is an excellent native ground cover for part shade and loose humusy soils. It produces lovely white dogwood flowers followed by long-lasting clusters of red berries. Fall foliage becomes nicely tinted with red and burgundy. In the wild plants grow in thin or rocky soils or in the duff layer beneath (often) coniferous trees. Roots often travel just below the surface of decaying organic matter. Avoid overly heavy garden soils such as those amended with compost. Deer resistant.
