As a large, deciduous shrub, Dogwood hedging (cornus) is a popular choice for a number of different reasons – the most prominent being their vivid, attractive appearance during the winter months. This superb trait means that Dogwood hedging plants can add a burst of distinctive colour to your garden or outdoor area during the time of year when many plants typically lose all of their leaves or flowers.
To get the best out of the unique appearance of these Dogwood plants it is a good idea to plant them in groups, to give a full view of their beautiful colours. According to experts, Dogwood hedging benefits from some tough love, with regular pruning before they bud after the first year. If you cut them back, feed and water them well then you will be rewarded with their vivid, colourful stems for years to come.
We offer a number of different Dogwood hedging plant varieties, all of which have a number of similar habits. Typically, you will see white flowers and berries on the plants during spring and summer, before the reddened leaves fall in autumn to reveal the wonderful coloured stems during the colder months.
Their versatile, hardy properties make them great in moist areas, as well as areas that are sunny or feature partial shade. They can also be planted in front of other evergreen hedging plants, where different varieties of plant would typically struggle due to the short supply of light, nutrients and water.
We stock a variety of Dogwood hedging plants throughout the year including Cornus sericea Flaviramea, Cornus alba Kesselringii, Cornus sanguinea, Cornus alba Spaethii, Cornus alba Sibirica, Cornus alba Elegantissima and Cornus sericea Flaviramea.
