Buy Cornus canadensis creeping dogwood: Useful and effective ground cover

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Showy white petal-like flower bracts look really pretty when they appear in late spring and early summer, framed by a collar of rich green leaves. After they fade, they are followed in autumn by a jaunty cluster of bright red berries. This creeping dogwood is an attractive groundcover for the front of a shrub border or woodland garden. It performs best in a partially shaded spot in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to acid soil.

  • Garden care: Incorporate a quantity of composted pine needles or well-rotted leaf mould when planting. Divide large colonies of plants in spring or autumn.

Still waiting for it to establish properly. Seemed to struggle in last summers heat. Looking forward to seeing it this year.



Slow growing and not yet established


Still waiting for it to start growing and spreading after 12 months




A great ground cover


I use these as a ground covering plant as they contrast well with most evergreen shrubs.

Hello, It really depends on how impatient you are as one plant can eventually spread to for a clump around 1.5m in diameter.
