Silky Dogwood (Cornus Amomum) comprise of Live Stakes, which are dormant cuttings that belong to the shrub plant family.
This plant is common in Eastern parts of North America, and plant enthusiasts should find it in areas where the soil is hydric and under partial shade. Many love silky dogwood because of its silky appearance, which when put together with the cluster of leaves makes for a visually appealing bush. Silky Dogwood and their Live Stakes make great additions to any house's garden, especially when the flowers of the bushy plant attract butterflies in the spring. Part of the plant also consists of small lavender/white berries, which make great treats for the songbirds (while also unsuitable for human consumption). The leaves of the plant become nearly burgundy when it's fall, and even in the winter, the reddish-brown stems at least stand out from the snow.
While they make for great additions to a garden as much as they would to an open area outdoors, there is advice worth looking over beforehand.
Firstly, it's suitable to plant silky dogwood and their live stake extensions before they enter their blooming time; this is normally done during late fall and before spring. It's also important to add water to the soil before planting the seeds, as silky dogwood grows best when the soil contains water. Gardeners should also add distance between the seeds, which means keeping them 3-6 feet apart from one another will prevent clashing between stems. Finally, make sure that the stems are at least cut at a 45-degree angle, so it can better absorb the nutrients of the soil it's a part of.
