Cornus controversa 'Pagoda'

In stock (shipped within 2-3 working days)
£55.00

(Wedding Cake Tree) An unusual and desirable green-leaved garden tree which gradually develops a handsome tiered habit and masses of creamy-white flower heads in May.

The summer leaves are dark green and colour with vibrant purple and orange tints once established.

The tiered habit takes several years to develop with the best shape being seen when planted in a position sheltered from strong winds.

Very limited number of young plants available this year

    • Height: 8 - 10 m (26 - 32 ft)
    • Spread: 5 - 6 m (16 - 20 ft)
  • Pruning: After planting, look for a strongly growing stem developing after about two to four years, perhaps growing at an odd angle but obviously much more vigorous than the normal shoots.

    Train this stem vertically (usually up a thin bamboo cane or similar) to form the trunk and basis of the tiered structure. Some plants occasionally produce two or even three of these vigorous "leaders", in this case remove all but the most central one.
