Cornus alba 'Sibirica' is a popular large shrub with superb bright red stems which are ideal for adding colour to a winter garden. The leaves are dark green and can turn colourful shades of plum purple in autumn before falling. A tough and reliable garden plant.

Supplied Size: 3L pots (approx 30 - 40 cm tall)

  • Position: Full sun or light, dappled shade.
  • Soil: Fertile, well drained soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy
  • Flowering Period: May - June.
  • Rate of Growth: Vigorous.
  • Habit: Large shrub.
    • Height: 3 m (10 ft) if unpruned.
    • Spread: 3 m (10 ft) if unpruned.
  • Pruning: In our opinion, this plant 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.
