Cayenne Dogwood is a wonderful plant that has a variety of landscape uses. Foliage emerges in spring to cover the plant in standard size green leaves. White flowers later on provide decoration for this shrub. Along with the foliage that maintains all summer, clusters of tiny blue berries form late summer, providing interest to the local wildlife. In the Autumn the foliage turns a beautiful orange to red color. In the winter, the Cayenne really shines with its bright red stems. This provides a great deal of interest for a plant at a time when most others do not have much color.
Cornus amomum ‘Cayenne’ grows 6 to 8 feet tall with a spread of 8 to 10 feet. It is recommended for climate zones 4 to 9. It grows best in full sun. Cayenne can do well in moist areas and could be used for wetland mitigation. It does require just moderate amounts of moisture to be properly cared for. Overall, a low maintenance plant, with great all season interest qualities.
