Cornus alba 'Aurea'
Dogwood - 3 litres
Cornus alba 'Aurea' (dogwood) is a year-round star bearing soft golden-yellow leaves in spring and summer that are suffused pink, orange and crimson in autumn. Glossy red stems are an outstanding feature throughout the winter.
Medium-sized hardy deciduous shrub. Thrives in ordinary to damp boggy soil. Best colour in full sun, but an attractive lime green in partial shade. Cut up to half the shrub back hard in March (choosing the oldest stems) to maintain stem colour.
