Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Video
Well named as The Wedding Cake Tree! The distinctive, horizontal-tiered branches of Cornus controversa 'Variegata' are clothed in bright green leaves with bold creamy white margins. Clusters of white flowers in June create a magnificent focal point for a medium sized garden. The leaves turn red-purple in autumn, with clusters of blue-black berries. This deciduous tree will take a few years to attain its full potential but makes a superb specimen tree at maturity. Height: 8m (25’). Spread: 8m (25’).

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.

Flowering Months
Feed and water flowering dogwoods regularly until fully established. Once established, Cornus trees require only occasional attention. Pruning dogwood is best kept to a minimum, removing only occasional damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in late winter or early spring. As the tree matures the lower branches can be removed to create a clear trunk. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or other organic matter around the base of the plant in spring. Caution: Fruits are harmful if eaten, leaf hairs may irritate skin and eyes.
Grow Cornus trees in rich fertile, well drained, neutral to acid soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil to improve drainage and soil fertility. Plant dogwood trees in a sunny or semi-shaded position.
