Cornus alternifolia / Pagoda dogwood
Pagoda dogwood looks like it could fit in a Japanese garden. Its Latin name, Cornus alternifolia, refers to the alternate leaf arrangement that is unusual to dogwoods (they are typically opposite). It’s regal, tiered stature features delicate clusters of flowers in the spring. Pagoda dogwood produces deep blue fruit particularly loved by birds and its roots and bark have medicinal qualities! Best in part shade with moist, well drained soil.
