Dogwood is a native deciduous shrub which is ideal in a woodland area, or wildlife garden. It is attractive at many times throughout the year; in Spring the leaves are a fresh green; in early Summer there are clusters of creamy flowers; in Autumn the leaves turn a deep crimson and in Winter the stems can be striking when any new growth is bright red. Our Dogwood shrubs are 2-3 years old and are 60cm- 1m tall. They will grow in most garden soils and will also survive in a damp area, so are very versatile.
In Autumn, the berries on the Dogwood attract small mammals and birds whilst earlier in the year, the flowers attract pollinators.
If the stems are in the sun they are crimson but when in the shade they remain green.
