Typically grown for their winter colour, dogwoods look fantastic next to evergreen shrubs. The creamy white flowers in May to June time attract a lot of insects and provide berries for birds in the autumn. A quite underrated plant that is fully hardy, it does prefer damper soils but can grown in either full sun or part shade. For best stem colour it is best to leave pruning until the second year it is planted and then cut the stems back hard to around 6cm. Grows to an eventual height and width of around 2m.
Purchase this as part of a pack of 10, 50 or 100 bare root trees. All specimens will be 2 year old plants, around 40-60cm tall.
60cm spiral guards and 90cm bamboo canes are recommended for each plants to protect from rabbit damage.
Can be planted as individual trees or used to create wildlife friendly hedging.
