Creeping Dogwood is a dwarf deciduous shrub that acts as a creeping ground cover.  Its glossy dark green leaves grow at the top the stems in false whorls and turn red to purple in fall.   Small flowers with large white brackets bloom in late spring and is followed by edible drupes that ripen to bright red in late summer.  Prefers part sun and slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soil.  Has good resistance to dogwood anthracnose.
