Native to eastern North America the grey dogwood is a medium sized shrub reaching a mature height and spread of about 15 feet. The leaves on the grey dogwood are green and lance shaped, turning a somewhat showy dark red/purple in the fall. The berries of the grey dogwood are a very showy white with red stems. Small clusters of white flowers adorn this shrub for 2 weeks in early summer/ late spring. The fruit on the grey dogwood is a favorite amongst many wildlife species, thanks in part to the early maturation of the fruit, often being the first of the dogwoods to bear fruit.
