Cornus sericea 'Baileyi'

GEM BOX DWARF

INKBERRY

"Known for its dense, round shape and small, glossy leaves, this compact evergreen shrub produces small white flowers in spring, followed by black berries in the fall. This ornamental shrub has beautiful foliage year round and can be a beautiful addition to any landscape or garden."

IN OUR GARDEN

Currently, we have twenty-eight inkberries in our park. They'll start blooming and showing off their flowers in spring, and begin fruiting in late autumn.

HOW TO GROW

SOIL CONDITIONS

The Gem Box Dwarf Inkberry excels when planted in sandy loam soil, requiring efficient drainage and an ample presence of organic nutrients. It thrives within a preferred pH range that typically leans slightly acidic to neutral, spanning from 5.5 to 7.0 for its optimal growth.

SUN EXPOSURE

The Gem Box Dwarf Inkberry, originating from native understory habitats, thrives in environments characterized by partial shade to dappled sunlight. Although it is capable of tolerating full sun, it's worth noting that in hotter climates, providing shade during the sun's peak intensity is advisable to prevent potential heat-related stress.
