Cornus 'Royal Red'

Cornus florida ‘Cherokee Chief’, Dogwood

Hardy Shrub

  • Grow as a tree or upright shrub
  • Vibrant red 'flowers'
  • Must-have designer's plant
Flowering dogwoods have become a design staple in recent years, featuring heavily in RHS show gardens. They have gained a big following from garden designers and home gardeners alike. Be a trendsetter with this new red flowering version. Cornus 'Royal Red' produces a profusion of blushing 'bracts' around simple nectar-laden blooms, which will draw butterflies and other pollinators from near and far. This compact cornus can be grown as a small tree, or if basal growth is left to mature, it will form into a neat upright shrub. Either way it's an ideal option for adding shape and height to small garden displays. Cornus 'Royal Red' can also be grown in large containers. Height 180cm (71"). spread 180cm (71")

hedges, cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, specimen plant, woodland garden

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.
