Gray twig dogwood is a deciduous shrub bearing dome-shaped clusters of white flowers in late spring. The flowers give way to clusters of small white berries held on licorice red stems, a delightful contrast. Gray-green leaves turn dusky purple-red in fall. This thicket-forming shrub is a good source of food and cover for birds and other wildlife. Can be used as a hedge and for erosion control on slopes.
