'Kelsey' dogwood is a low growing deciduous shrub with bright green leaves and masses
of white flowers appearing in May to June and striking red stems in winter.
Moderate to fast growth rate. Life span approximately 20 years.
Full to part sun. Adaptable but prefers moist, well drained soil.
Blooms are flat-topped clusters of small white flowers in late spring. Foliage turns a bronze
to purplish color in fall. After leaves are shed the plant retains its striking red twigs during winter.

to rejuvenate shrub for better winter color.
