The stems are red year-round. Small white flowers are clustered into a flat-topped cyme that turn into white drupes.

This dogwood is cold hardy and resistant to pests and diseases. The form is a multi-stemmed informal mound that can be pruned back in the early spring. The shrub should not be in full sun because the leaves will bleach or burn. In heavy shade, the leaves will be dark green.
