Cayenne Dogwood is a native selection that stands out with bright red stems that shine all winter, even in warmer winter areas. The fresh green foliage looks good all summer and is accented by porcelain blue berries that form in late summer. As temperatures cool down, the green leaves turn orange red. To date, Cayenne is Japanese beetle and canker resistant, and is well-suited to moist areas, is good in shrub borders, and is frequently used for wetland mitigation.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
