Cornus - Dogwood
Cornus are grown for their outstanding bark which will bring a welcomed burst of colour to a dormant winter garden. The stems vary in colours, depending on the variety you select, and they look particularly effective when you plant different varieties alongside each other. They offer further interest in spring when their leaves appear, these are later accompanied by an array of spring flowers.
