Swida foemina

Swamp dogwood

Swida foemina is a large shrub native across the southeast, and found predominantly in wetland habitats. It can be grown in full sun to part shade, and likes to be in wet soils. It produces small white flowers in late spring, and blue berries in fall. The berries attract birds, and also feed mammals of all sizes (from chipmunks to bears). Swida foemina works well for restoration projects.
