Cornus winter stem colour

Ideal for showing off for the winter months and guaranteed to raise a smile on a sunny wintery day when the stems positively shine with exuberance. Underplant with spring flowering bulbs for a real spirit lifting display in the spring.

Many are familiar with the red stemmed Cornus – but why not cut a dash with the more dramatic ‘Kesselringii’ or ‘Flaviramea’.

For a more vibrant display all on one plant – there are ‘Magic Flame’ and ‘Midwinter Fire’ that have stems that coloured with red, orange and yellow.

Best when planted in groups of 3 or in larger groups that catch the winter sun. Tough as they come, ideal for planting in wet soils, easy to maintain and equally happy in sun or shade Cornus  will perform when all else looks bleak in the winter.
