As a comment about Red Twig Dogwood (Cornus sericea), Bonehead wrote:

Native in Canada, USA (Pacific NW, NE, Central) and Mexico. Found in forest understory, often in boggy areas. Multi-season plant: red bark in winter, white flowers in spring, berries in summer, and golden red leaves in fall. Provides fruit for the birds, and browse for deer. This is a great native plant to add to your landscaping for a pop. It also makes a nice screening thicket if planted en masse.

This plants native range is actually MUCH larger than the pacific NW...as I know they are native here in New Hampshire.

From wiki...

"native throughout northern and western North America from Alaska east to Newfoundland, south to Durango and Nuevo León in the west, and Illinois and Virginia in the east"

You are correct. I edited my comment to read native "in" the PNW rather than "to" the PNW, which more accurately reflects my personal knowledge.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
