06.20.2022 Silky Dogwood

A bit different in appearance from the dogwoods we are most familiar with, this shrub produces blue berries, not blueberries, that birds are quite happy to consume.

Silky Dogwood-Cornus amomum aka Swida amomum. I photographed these in the same field as yesterday’s grass pink.

And on the subject of blue berries…

  1. Just like bluebells differ from blue bells and bluebonnets from blue bonnets.

    What an interesting flower. I’ve never heard of this one, which makes sense. The cluster of little star-shaped blooms is pretty. Is it fragrant?

    My dogwood bloomed long ago (well, it seems like it was long ago…), so I’m enjoying yours. I love the dark-tinged leaves of yours, very pretty. Aren’t all dogwoods, dogwoods? 🙂 ‘Taxi’ was a great show.

    • We have two dogwood trees, white and pink, which like yours flowered a while ago. These are very different in their flowering and branching. Yes, they are …except when they aren’t 🙂 Taxi was one of the few sitcoms that we watched.
