Buy Cornus florida f. rubra flowering dogwood: Bright autumnal colour

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

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

    Tiny, yellowish-green flowers in May, surrounded by showy, reddish-pink flower bracts, and curled mid-green leaves turning red-purple in autumn. This conical, deciduous tree or shrub is an excellent specimen for the smaller garden. For the best results chose a site with fertile, humus-rich, neutral to acid soil, since it dislikes alkaline soil.

  • Garden care: Incorporate a quantity of composted pine needles or well-rotted leaf mould when planting. Requires minimal pruning.
