Cornus racemosa

Grey Dogwood

This is a drought-tolerant dogwood that grows well in full sun or part-shade. Its older branches become a rich grey colour, giving it its common name. Grey dogwood produces clusters of fluffy white blossoms in June, which are later followed by deep, red-purple leaves and white clusters of berries on bright red stalks.
