Cornus obliqua (Blue-Fruited Dogwood / Pale Dogwood / Swamp Dogwood) is a medium to large-sized deciduous shrub found in moist lowland areas but grows well in normal soil conditions. Common in natural areas this species is uncommon in landscaping but has found a home in several suburban gardens.  White flowers give way to berry-like drupes that change from white to blue as they ripen in late summer; attractive to birds.  Fall color can be impressive with red-purple leaves.
