Cornus alba Plants

Red Stemmed Dogwood

A large, upright, deciduous shrub with a suckering habit, boasting deep red stems that come into their own when the plant loses its leaves in winter. It also produces clusters of small white flowers in late spring and early summer, which mature into white berries in autumn. Why not try growing it with bergenia, as pictured - the contrast of leaf shape and colour is superb! Height up to 3m.

Be tempted! There is always a space where you could plant a shrub. Unlike herbaceous perennials, which die back to the ground each winter, they provide a permanent 3-dimensional structure, forming a backdrop to their more ephemeral neighbours. Some shrubs are easy to grow or provide particular interest. Some have an extended flowering season and others provide additional colour or structure at different times of the year.

On  receipt of your plants remove them from the packaging immediately, and water if necessary.

PLANTING - Prior to planting the trees and shrubs, dig over the area to two spades depth and incorporate a generous amount of garden compost or well-rotted manure. A dressing of bonemeal can also be applied at a rate of 105-140grms per sq.m (3-4 oz per sq yd). Dig out the hole about 15cm (6") wider than the root-ball and deep enough so that its top is just below the soil surface. Gently tease out some of the roots from around the root-ball to encourage new root growth to spread out into the surrounding soil. Fill in the hole around the plant gently firming the soil as you go. Water the plant to settle the soil around the roots.

Ideal for beds and borders. Attractive to pollinators. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
