Description

Cornus canadensis is a species of flowering plant in the dogwood family. Common names include Canadian dwarf cornel, and Canadian bunchberry. Unlike its relatives, which are for the most part substantial trees and shrubs, C. canadensis is a slow-growing herbaceous perennial growing 10–20 cm tall, generally forming a carpet-like mat. It is used as ornamental groundcover in gardens. It prefers moist acidic soil.

In late spring to midsummer, white flowers are produced. Its native distribution includes Japan, North Korea, northeastern China (Jilin Province), the Russian Far East, the northern United States, Colorado, New Mexico, Canada and Greenland. Cornus canadensis typically inhabits montane and boreal coniferous forests, where it is found growing along the margins of moist woods, on old tree stumps, in mossy areas, and among other open and moist habitats.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 20 cm, 10"

Hardiness zones: 2-7

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 6-8 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Please note, after bringing the seeds to warmth, germination can take a few months.
