Cornus stolonifera Flaviramea, or Golden barked dog wood as it is better known, it is a garden stalwart for many people, and essential for providing a shot of bright structural colour in winter.
These are great value for money, and provide a long lasting display when little else can inject vibrancy to the garden. Plant them for a mass of vibrant golden yellow stems all winter.
If you need something to add a shot of bright colour in the colder darker months then these are a very good choice, looking good what ever the weather, they actually appear even brighter against a blanket of snow. Clusters of white flowers in May and June and oval, dark green leaves, which redden in autumn and fall to reveal bright, yellow-olive winter stems.
The stems of this dogwood look stunning planted alongside salmon-pink and red-stemmed varieties. An excellent specimen plant for sunny, moist areas of the garden it's particularly effective near water.
These are great plants, supplied in approx 2-3 litre containers. Perfect for planting out in the garden or for displaying in seasonal planters. Why not try underplanted with some spring bulbs?
