In the springtime, they dazzle with white bracts and flowers, in the summer they reveal glossy green leaves, in the fall, they grow crimson berries, and in winter their textured bark steals the show. Despite their elegance, white dogwoods are relatively low-maintenance, making a great specimen or foundation plant for your garden.

Elderberry-The American elderberry (Sambucus canadensis) is a deciduous shrub that comes from North America. It is also known as the pie elder, American elder, black elderberry, elder-blow, sweet elder or just elderberry. Each spring the plant is covered with clusters of tiny white flowers that are followed by purplish-black fruit.

Black Chokeberry-Black chokeberry has dark green leaves that are 1-3" long and lanceolate or elliptical in shape. In the fall they change to reddish hues. The white flowers appear during springtime and comein clusters called corymbs. The fruit produced is a small black pome that has tannins which pack pucker power. They might be too astringent for some people, but they are eaten fresh and used in cooking for jams, juices and more. Birds will happily eat them off the shrub.

Nannyberry- Viburnum lentago, commonly called nannyberry, is a large, upright, multi-stemmed, suckering, deciduous shrub which typically grows to 10-18' tall with a spread of 6-12', but may also be grown as a small, single trunk tree which may reach a height of 30'. Non-fragrant white flowers in flat-topped cymes (to 4.5" diameter) appear in spring. Flowers give way in autumn to blue-black, berry-like drupes which often persist into winter and are quite attractive to birds and wildlife
