Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis)
Also known as the Creeping Dogwood, Bunchberries provide a lush, carpeted ground cover in partially shaded areas. Showy white flowers bloom in late spring and are followed by a cluster of bright-red pectin-rich stone fruit that appear to be berries in late summer. While the fruit is edible, it is not super appetizing, but combines easily with other fruits to provide a healthy dose of nutrients and have medicinal properties. While other animals such as deer and moose forage the Bunchberry, birds especially depend on this fruit for their fall migration.
