Cornus sanguinea Mid Winter Fire
A long standing favourite for colour on the winter garden. Very easy to grow with really striking orange to pink and vermilion stems which are the main feature of this much used plant. It is important to prune most of the stems back to near ground level on mature plants to ensure a plentiful supply of new stems. The young stems have the best colour. In addition produces good autumn colour. Can be used anywhere but probably look at their best planted together with the the red stem varieties such as alba sibirica.
