Creek Dogwood

Creek Dogwood, American Dogwood (Cornus sericea). Sometimes known as red-twig dogwood. Deciduous shrub.

This is not a drought-tolerant plant, as its common name indicates. I remember enjoying this plant while walking along streams in Yosemite Valley for its lush green appearance. In winter, our plant transforms into a maze of bright red twigs backed by a dark wood fence.
