We have some new Cornus this year joining the colourful crew. Let us introduce you to:
Cornus sericea Cardinal Medium sized shrub with yellow - orange stems with bright red tips that come into their own in the winter
Cornus sericea Bud’s Yellow Yellow- green stems in the winter
Cornus sanguinea Anny’s Winter Orange Warm shades of orange and gold stems
The new crew join the already well known and loved winter coloured stemmed Cornus below:
Cornus alba Baton Rouge Bright red stems
Cornus alba Elegantissima Bright red stems. Green and silver variegated leaves.
Cornus alba Kesselringii Black stems, almost purple. Excellent when planted with other Cornus
Cornus alba Sibirica Crimson winter stems
Cornus sericea Flaviramea Bright green – yellow winter stems
Cut all winter colour stemmed Cornus back hard in the spring to encourage new wood that will colour again ready for next winters display.
