Cornus canadensis

Creeping Dogwood.......excellent ground cover.......was looking for something to plant in a shady area.Has anyone grown this particular plant?

Yes, Julia . . . I loved it and lost it! Yet another Cornus that seems to prefer acid soil :(

I'm sure you don't need suggestions(?), but my shady area is covered with Pulmonaria, Epimedium, Brunnera and Vinca. Hope your C. Canadensis will be happy!

Thanks so much, Sheila......I noticed it liked acid soil.....will have to add some and hope for the best.....Epimediums will be in the queue if it was an expensive plant.

I've grown it. It did ok. Took a while to settle in though, so don't be downhearted if it's slow to get going.
