Caption: Cornus alba, popularly known as red-barked or Siberian dogwood, is a species of flowering plant in the family Cornaceae, native to Siberia, northern China and Korea. It is a medium-sized suckering deciduous shrub forming a thicket of slender, red stems that become bright crimson in winter. Leaves ovate, turning reddish in autumn, flowers small, creamy, in flat heads; berries bluish-white. It is very popular as a decorative shrub in parks and gardens on account of its notable red stems that pertain through fall and into late winter. Cornus alba can grow to 3 m high. For the brightest winter bark, cutting to the ground some older stems at the end of the winter, before leaves are open, boosts young shoots.
