Cornus alba

Red-twig dogwood (Bare root 60-90cms)

Price: €0.95

Great winter colour. A popular plant, most often seen in mass plantings along roadsides where its red twigs bring much-needed colour to the winter landscape. This is a vigorous, suckering plant which should be cut down to a few inches above ground level in late winter / early spring to encourage new growth. This can be done every year or every second year - doing this also keeps it nicely bushy. Foliage in summer mainly hides the stems. There are small white, fairly insignificant flowers in spring, followed by small berries. A good plant for moist soils, though it is tolerant of many conditions, including exposed locations and hedgerows. Read more on bare root plants...
