Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' (Large Plant)

Red-barked Dogwood

Hardy Shrub

Make sure you don't get caught out with a dull winter garden - this Dogwood is grown for its vivid red bare stems, which will shimmer and glow during the coldest months of the year. The perfect winter colour shrub for your garden!

Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' is an easy to maintain shrub, which is neat, bushy and fills a gap in the border quickly and easily. The summer flowers are cream, and the large green leaves turn an attractive autumn shade too.

Dogwood is a resilient, trouble free shrub for a sunny border; it requires a moist, well-drained soil but can also tolerate consistently damp areas. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2.4m (8').

Plant Dogwood into garden borders in any moist, well drained garden soil, in full shade or part shade. Cornus is a very useful shrub, as it can also tolerate damp soils or an exposed position.
To encourage plenty of colourful stems, Dogwood will need regular pollarding in early spring. Cut back all Dogwood stems to 3 buds above soil level or to a permanent low framework. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or other organic matter around the base of the plant after this pruning. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
