Cornus 'Baileyi'


'Baileyi' is a redtwig dogwood cultivar. It is a rapid-growing, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub which grows to a maximum size of 6-10' tall with a loose, rounded habit. It lacks the stoloniferous, spreading habit of the species and is listed in Hortus Third as Cornus sericea forma baileyi. Some nurseries sell the plant as Cornus baileyi. The outstanding ornamental feature of this plant is its bright red winter stems. Leaves (2-4" long) have curling hairs underneath.
