Gray dogwood (Cornus racemosa) is a thicket-forming, deciduous shrub 10 to 16 ft. in height with greenish-white blossoms in open, terminal clusters, similar in appearance to roughleaf dogwood. Young twigs are reddish and the fruit pedicels remain conspicuously red into late fall and early winter. Foliage turns an interesting (but not always showy) dusky purplish red in fall. Fruit itself is a white, 1/4 in. drupe that usually does not remain on the shrub for long. Gray dogwood typically occurs in moist or rocky ground along streams, ponds, wet meadows, glade and prairie margins, thickets and rocky bluffs.
Uses: Gray Dogwood can be used for windbreaks. The fruit of this dogwood is eaten by birds and other wildlife.
