Cornus alba 'Elegantissima'

Variegated red-twig dogwood (bare root 60-90cms)

Price: €2.95

One of the most attractive variegated plants, attractive in both winter and summer. In the winter, when the stems are bare, it looks like the straightforward red twig dogwood (Cornus alba). When in leaf, however, it is one of the best and most refined variegated plants around, with an attractive and understated silver variegation. We have used this in our garden designs over the years, where it makes an easily-maintained and dense lower level mass planting which covers larger areas economically - perfect for planting in amongst tree specimens. Good for moist soil, though this isn't essential, in full sun or light shade. Cut down to a few inches above ground level in late winter to keep stems red and vigorous.

  • Sturdy, well-rooted bare root plants.
  • 60-90cms tall. 
  • November to March only.
