Cornus canadensis 


A low, rhizomous shrubby groundcover of acidic woods and bogs. The leaves are arranged in whorl-like clusters. A solitary creamy-white bloom appears at the tip of the stems in spring which later produces red berries in late summer. The berries are eaten by birds and other wildlife in the fall. Makes an excellent ground cover under evergreen trees.
