Cornus canadensis (new name - Chamaepericlymenum canadense)
Lovely native woodland ground cover with leaves and eggshell-white blossoms like any Dogwood. Likes moisture and acidic soil; wonderful companion to dormant or non-dormant woodland wildflowers. Red fall foliage. Eggshell-white flowers appear between June and July. Best in northern New England. (Note the new name, MUCH harder to pronounce – Chamaepericlymenum canadense.)
One of our New England Woodlanders: perennials that are native to New England, nursery propagated, but never collected from the wild; grown in New Hampshire.
Native to the United States.
