Description

Dogwood is usually grown for its vivid bare stems, which give incredible winter colour. Cornus alba 'Aurea' is an easy to grow shrub, which fills a gap in the border quickly. Summer blooms are cream, and the large leaves are a glowing golden colour, but it is the red winter stems that really dazzle!

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

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Dogwood into garden borders in any moist, well drained garden soil. Grow in full shade or part shade, neutral to acid soil. Cornus can also tolerate damp soils or an exposed position.
More Info
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.
