Red-osier Dogwood

10-5-15 red-osier dogwood IMG_6598Gray Dogwood (also known as Gray-stemmed Dogwood) and Red-osier Dogwood both have white berries, a white pith, and red peduncles, or fruit stems. However, the branches of Gray Dogwood are gray, and those of Red-osier Dogwood are red. Hence, I believe the shrub identified as Red-osier Dogwood in today’s post was actually Gray Dogwood. This correction is thanks to John Gregoire’s keen eyes.
