Roughleaf dogwood is a large shrub or a small tree that prefers moist soils but is adaptable to dry alkaline soils. It does best in part shade to shade. It tends to sucker from the base and can form thickets, particularly if grown in moist soil.  

Roughleaf dogwood has delightful small white blooms in the spring that are followed by berries that mature in the summer and persist into fall. Berries are relished by birds and flowers provide nectar for butterflies. Fall color is burgundy. It is a must-have in naturalized gardens and wildscapes if space allows for it.
