Pagoda Dogwood is a small understory tree native to much of the eastern United States. It gets its common name from its pagoda-like horizontal branching pattern. This plant's blossoms are creamy or yellowish white, very fragrant, and form clusters at the ends of branches. The flowers are followed by berries that gradually change from green to red to blue-black, on red stalks. These berries are a valuable food for birds and other wildlife. The leaves can turn to a beautiful reddish-purple before they drop in autumn. The color varies from tree to tree, and may partly depend on growing conditions. The light brownish-gray bark, together with the interesting branching structure, give the plant winter appeal .Beautiful,structural smaller tree!
