  • Alternate Leaves: One of the most striking features of Cornus alternifolia is its alternate arrangement of leaves along the branches. The leaves are oval to lance-shaped and have a glossy green color. This unique leaf arrangement sets it apart from many other dogwood species.

  • Horizontal Branching: Pagoda dogwood is known for its horizontally tiered or "pagoda-like" branching structure. This growth habit gives the tree a visually interesting and architectural quality, making it a popular choice for landscape design.

  • White Spring Flowers: In late spring to early summer, Cornus alternifolia produces clusters of small, creamy white flowers with a pleasant fragrance. These flowers are attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies.

  • Fruit and Wildlife: After flowering, the tree forms bluish-black, berry-like fruit that is a food source for birds, including songbirds and migratory species. It provides essential sustenance for wildlife, contributing to local biodiversity.

  • Shade Tolerance: While Cornus alternifolia can tolerate full sun, it also performs well in partial shade or dappled sunlight. This adaptability to different light conditions makes it suitable for various garden and woodland settings.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
