What do these terms mean?

Cornus stolonifera
   by Nora_in_Vancouver
Native and widespread in Alberta. Tolerates wet soil, found near streams and rivers. The white fruit (in August) is bitter, but edible. Only the young twigs show the red colour, older stems become greyish. Leaves are red in fall, another bonus.
