Dogwood, Irish Setter Gray


An improvement on native gray dogwood with more colorful winter stems, better disease resistance and a less aggressive habit. Clusters of creamy white, nectar-rich spring flowers are followed by white fruit on showy red stalks that attract cardinals, bluebirds and other songbirds. Shiny, dark gray-green, leaf spot resistant leaves turn deep maroon in fall, the color lasting for weeks. For added interest, new stems are a bright red color over the winter! Adaptable to sun or shade, dry or wet soils. Great for massing or hedging in large areas.

  • Mature Height: 8-10 feet
  • Mature Width: 8-10 feet
  • Spacing: 5-6 feet
  • Sunlight: Sun, Part Sun, Shade
  • Soil Type: Generally Dry, Moist (typical), Soggy, Flood-prone

Plants are constantly growing, ever-changing, and therefore unique. The plant you receive may vary from the photo, but rest assured, holds the same glorious potential!
