Cornus alba 'Sibirica'

'Sibirica' red twig dogwood

Price: €7.95

The 'Sibirica' dogwood has the reddest twig of all, making it a plant with unrivalled winter colour. This extra-red variety of Dogwood is used in gardens and also along roadsides. It is a tough, bushy plant, tolerant of most soil conditions and environments, although the stems have the best colour when planted in a sunny spot. To encourage vigorous, strongly-coloured stems, cut down about a third of the stems each year in late winter. In leaf, the stems disappear, making this an attractive suckering shrub up to 2 m in height. For a dense ground cover, plant 1 plant per 1.5 -2 square metres and keep weed-free while establishing.
