What is Cornus canadense
Cornus canadense Canadian dwarf cornel, Canadian bunchberry, or Gozen Tachibana (scientific name: Cornus canadense) is an evergreen perennial plant in the family Cornaceae native to the northwestern parts of Asia including Japan, the Korean Peninsula and China , northern Europe and North America. In Japan, it grows naturally in the coniferous forests of the mountains of Hokkaido and Honshu. The height of the grass is only about 20 cm. The rhizome grows into the ground and crawls to reproduce. It blooms in the summer. What appear to be white four-petaled flowers are the total bracts. The real flower is the little pale yellow one in the center. It bears fruit after flowering and turns red when ripe.
A similar flower is Corns secica (Ezo Gozen Tachibana, scientific name: Cornus suecica).
