Cornus sericea L.
The nativity of this species in Virginia is questionable. It was historically reported to grow along the Potomac River in Fairfax Co., but supporting specimens currently appear to be lacking. The few additional records are compromised by diffulties in identification of vegetative specimens, and by the fact that the species is often planted and possibly escaped.
Riverbanks and shores; other Virginia habitats unknown. Rare; recorded only from Botetourt, Fairfax, and Fauquier counties.
