  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: deep, fertile, moisture-retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a stunning tree, with two seasons of interest, that really earns itsplace in the garden. In May, it produces masses of tiny, purplish-green flowers surrounded by large, showy, white, flower bracts. In autumn, the mid-green leaves turn brilliant shades of orange, red and purple. This broadly conical dogwood is an excellent specimen tree for small gardens. Although it tolerates dappled shade, it performs best in a sunny site with fertile, moisture-retentive soil.

  • Garden care: Incorporate a quantity of well-rotted garden compost or horse manure in the planting hole to improve the moisture retentive qualities of the soil.
