A popular and beautiful small tree with cream variegated leaves and distinct tiers of branches once established. The leaves are dappled with white and cream variegation and in summer, clusters of small, white flowers appear on the branches.
Cornus controversa 'Variegata' is not for instant gratification but grows to be a classic garden plant which will develop a strongly tiered habit, ideal for a sunny position with a little space.
Supplied Size: 3L pots (2 - 3 year old plants, approx 25 - 40 cm tall)
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.
