Out of stock - will return in Autumn 2018
Grow this plant for its shimmering crimson and orange winter stems. In spring it has creamy white flowers and in autumn its leaves turn red. Dogwoods generally grow well (and look great) in front of an evergreen hedge where nutrients, water and sunlight are in short supply for other species.
Estimate full grown height: 10 metres but can be pruned to retain shape and size. Dogwood trees grow an estimated 30-60cm each year.
Value to wildlife: Dogwood leaves are eaten by the caterpillars of some moths, including the case-bearer moth. The flowers are visited by insects and the berries are eaten by many mammals and birds.
Preferred soil type or environmental conditions: Very hardy and grows well in sun or partial shade in a range of soils.
UK sourced and grown: Every sapling that we provide is UK sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track each individual tree.
