A spectacular autumnal gem. The deep forest green leaves start to turn in autumn to rich bronze, orange and crimson shades that lasts into winter. In early summer the shrub is covered in tight clusters of small white flowers that are followed by strawberry-like deep pink fruit. A beautiful slow growing shrub with Japanese origins, it will take about 10 years to reach a height and spread of 3m and is best grown in partial shade. Bare root 40-50cm plant supplied.

Soil Type

Fertile, well drained, humus rich soil

Pruning

Mid Spring

Suitable for planting in most types of soil, and if you have the space then we recommend that you plant in groups of three for an even spread.
The cornus (dogwood) is an amazing and unique addition to any garden display, as it will produce wonderfully colourful shoots in winter. Will thrive in full sun or partial shade, and require little pruning, though you can prune back in mid-spring to help keep a comfortable shape. Make sure they get plenty of water in the dry season.
