Snow Mantle® Gray Dogwood -- Cornus racemosa ‘Jade’ (RFM-23)


Snow Mantle 1Snow Mantle 2Snow Mantle 3There is considerable interest in small trees for use in the landscape. Snow Mantle® Dogwood produces a 12 to 15 foot small tree covered with white flowers followed by white fruits, both borne in profusion. The fruits (drupes) are usually retained on the plants late into the fall. It grows with a somewhat layered, umbrella-shaped crown. Its lingering pink fruit pedicels also add interest in the fall. The older and larger this selection becomes, the more attention it has aroused. It naturally grows multi-trunked, and is most effective when allowed to grow in this manner. Available in commercial nursery trade. Reaches a semi-mature height in 14-16 years. Hardy in USDA Zone 3.
