A versatile dogwood grown for its compact habit, profuse flowering / fruiting and bright-red stems in winter. Cornus alba 'Siberian Pearls' has good crimson autumn colours and the corymbs of white flowers produced in late spring and early summer are followed by glistening-white berries.

An excellent border plant, this can also be used for informal hedging and the bright stems can be striking when used in floral arrangements.


  • Position: Full sun or partial shade (best winter stem colour in a sunny position)
  • Soil: Fertile, well drained soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy
  • Flowering Period: May - June.
  • Rate of Growth: Vigorous.
  • Habit: Cornus alba 'Siberian Pearls' grows to be a large branching shrub if left unpruned.
    • Height: up to 3 m (10 ft) if unpruned.
    • Spread: 3 m (10 ft) if unpruned.
  • Pruning: In our opinion, Cornus alba 'Siberian Pearls' is most attractive if pruned hard to about 30 - 40 cm above the ground early each spring. This will prevent it getting to large and rejuvenate the plant so the bright coloured stems appear each year.
  • Notes: Particularly splendid when planted in large groups as part of a winter border.
