Cornus canadensis, commonly known as dwarf cornel or bunchberry, is a shrubby, native, deciduous ground cover that typically grows to 4- 9” tall and spreads in the landscape by creeping rhizomes. This dwarf species of dogwood produces the same shaped leaves and flowers found on the familiar Cornus florida tree except in smaller size. In North America, it is primarily native to coniferous, deciduous and mixed forests throughout Canada and the northern U.S., south in the Appalachians to Virginia and in the Rocky Mountains to New Mexico.
