ALLEMANS COMPACT DOGWOOD
Alleman’s compact is a semi-dwarf cultivar of our native Redtwig Dogwood. Clusters of white flowers bloom in late spring, and develop into white berries in early fall. These berries are attractive to birds. Deep green leaves turn red-purple in the fall. Stems are bright red and make a standout in the winter landscape. Alleman’s can tolerate wet soil conditions, but avoid planting in drier sites. A great shrub to use in massing or groupings. Cut back older stems to the ground in order to maintain red color.
