Product information "Red-barked Dogwood"

Cornus alba Elegantissima is a fast-growing ornamental shrub that provides a long season of interest in the garden. It has beautiful, variegated foliage that remains vibrant and does not fade during the summer. The white flowers appear in May/June in small cymes. White berries adorn the plant in the autumn. The bark and branches are bright red to purple in the winter. 

Cornus alba Elegantissima can grow up to 2 m high and is just as wide It should be planted where it may take up space. The colourful foliage is also attractive in a mixed woody plant hedge. It is a very adaptable plant, but better stem and leaf colour will be achieved when planted in full sun. This plant is very hardy and tolerates moist conditions. Cut back the stems to within 2 or 3 buds of the base or to the permanent framework in early spring, then apply well-rotted manure and mulch.
