Cornus alba ' Kesselringii', Dogwood, is a deciduous shrub grown primarily for its purple-black stems in winter, contrasting well with red, yellow and orange-stemmed dogwoods and willows. Its attractive leaves are bronze-tinged when young and colour richly in autumn. Clusters of small cream-white flowers in May-June are followed by white berries. Unpruned it will grow up to 2.5m high, cut hard back 1.2-1.5m high and wide, partially pruned will be maintained at 5-6ft. Fits into a shrub border or effective in groups in larger areas. Excellent for damp, boggy soils.

Plant in ordinary to damp, boggy soil, in sun or light shade. Pruning: leave for 2 seasons after planting, then either cut all stems down to a few cm in early spring or cut down the oldest third of stems to have flowers, berries and more height.

British nursery grown.
