Product Information

Dogwood Common (Cornus Sanguinea) is a deciduous hedge that is large in size, often found within mixed hedging in the countryside. It is characterised by its beautiful autumnal colour, producing fiery red and copper leaves.

During spring and summer, the Dogwood Common hedge will produce white flowers which, when pollinated, turn into black berries. Interestingly, when the sunlight falls on the twigs they look a crimson colour, yet the twigs that reside in the shade are lime green.

Dogwood Common hedging plants like to be planted in either partial or full sunlight and can work well in most soil types, and is especially well suited for wet and chalky soil. It does prefer however well drained moist soil, but can survive in wet sites and in either exposed or sheltered areas. Dogwood Common can grow up to two and a half metres and the same in width, although it does take between five and ten years to reach its ultimate height.

It has been used for many years predominantly as an ornamental plant to provide us with fantastic autumn colour in our gardens, and much needed food for wildlife during the colder months.

It is a great hedge for heights of four to seven feet, and we would recommend planting these eighteen to twenty-four inches apart. We have a range of Dogwood Common plants available in bare root form. For more information on this plant or any of our other hedging plants, contact our specialist team members for more information.
