There were also pincherries, alders, willows, currants, gooseberries, raspberries, roses, and even the occasional red osier dogwood
. The ground was covered by a variety of low growing plants such as blueberries, cranberries, sarsaparilla and wintergreens.
Red osier dogwood
brightens to blood-red, and wildflowers spring up where none appeared earlier.
However, I was doing some brush cutting and salvaged a large armload of red osier dogwood
, which also gets a chapter.
Nearby, transplanted Oregon ash, Piper's willow, Nootka rose and red osier dogwood
are taking root.
More than 3,000 cuttings of black cottonwood, red osier dogwood
and two species of native willow were planted along the edge of the creek under the direction of the Eugene Parks Division's wetlands and open waterways section.
