Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
This wonderful collection of Cornus is guaranteed to brighten up the dullest of winter days as well as add colour and interest to your garden all through the year. The collection comprises of four varieties, each with their own unique features:
  • Cornus alba 'Kesselringii' has a dense thicket of red shoots which quickly becomes covered in greenery in spring, inter-dispersed with cream coloured flowers which insects find very attractive.
  • Cornus alba 'Sibirica' is grown for its fiery red stems that bring colour to winter gardens Its small white flowers in early Summer make a pretty display that's loved by pollinating insects.
  • Cornus serica 'Flaviramea' has masses of bright yellow/green stems which shine brightly through the winter months in your garden when little else is providing you with colour. Spring will bring forth clusters of white flowers, turning into white berries later in the year.
  • Cornus sanguinea 'Winter Orange' is grown for its colourful winter stems, this spectacular Dogwood will really brighten up the garden during those cold, grey days. Cloaked in green foliage throughout summer, Cornus sanguinea 'Winter Orange' bears tiny white flowers followed by glossy black berries.

Water dogwood plants regularly throughout the growing season until fully established. After two years, Cornus sanguinea will benefit from regular pollarding to encourage the brightest winter stems. Prune Cornus hard in early spring by cutting back all stems to within 3 buds of the base or to a permanent low framework. Apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost to the base of dogwood shrubs in spring.
Caution: Dogwood berries are harmful if eaten and the leaves may be irritant to skin and eyes. Plant Cornus sanguinea in a sunny position, in any well drained soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply. Cornus sanguinea will happily grow in improved clay soils.
