Cornus China Girl - Flower

Cornus China Girl

Dogwood

Common Name: Cornus China GirlLatin Name: Cornus kousa var. chinensis 'China Girl'Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained, acid, alkaline or neutral.Position: Full sun to part shade. Flowering period/colour: June/White.Hardiness: Fully hardy in most parts of the UK, down to -15°C.Height and spread in 20-50 years: 4m-8m/4m-8mSpecial features:  Large, freely produced flowers, with showy white bracts facing upwards from horizontally layered branches. Flowers are followed by brightly coloured fruits resembling strawberries. Intense autumn colour. Cornus kousa var. chinensis 'China Girl' is a real statement species, with architectural, horizontally layered branches. It is an early flowering form of Cornus kousa var chinensis. Cornus China Girl is at its most striking in June, when the branches are topped by profuse, upward-facing white flowers that resemble a thick covering of snow. The variety is deciduous, with intense autumn colour as the leaves turn red and orange before dropping. Dogwoods are best left unpruned as their natural shape is very striking. They are an ideal species for a low maintenance garden, as they respond best to no pruning at all. From a garden design point of view, they are best positioned where the structure can be admired from a distance in the summer months, for example as a specimen shrub in the middle of a lawn or at the back of a deep herbaceous border. The quality of flowering in any given year is somewhat dependent on the previous summer’s weather. Long hot summers lead to very profuse flowering the following year. Cornus China Girl is fairly easy to grow, tolerating a range of soil and situation. It will tolerate dry soil only once established, but requires watering before this. It does not tolerate shallow chalk well. It particularly thrives in fertile, well drained soil with plenty of organic matter. Final size in 20 to 50 years is 4m to 8m tall and 4m to 8m wide. The species is hardy in almost all parts of the UK, down to -15°C and prefers full sun or partial shade.

Viburnum Charles Lamont - Flowers and Buds

Viburnum x bodnantense Charles Lamont

Arrowwood Charles Lamont

Common Name: Arrowwood 'Charles Lamont'Latin Name: Viburnum × bodnantense 'Charles Lamont'Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained; acid, alkaline or neutral.Position: Full sun, part shade, full shade. Flowering period/colour: November to MarchHardiness: Fully hardyHeight and spread in 20 years: 1.5m-2.5m/1-1.5mmSpecial features: Attractive, fragrant, pink/white flowers from November to March. Deciduous. Viburnum x bodnantense 'Charles Lamont' is a large, low-maintenance shrub, with a really striking floral display, that lends sparkle to the winter garden. The plant produces a splash of pink/white flowers from November to March, which can light up a border. The flowers are like small clouds of pink/white trumpets, borne on bare stems. The backdrop provided by the structure of the stems makes the effect all the more striking. Viburnum requires little care, and tolerates a wide range of soils and situations, including full shade. It requires minimal pruning but can also be pruned hard back, which is a very convenient feature in a low-maintenance garden. Ideal pruning involves cutting back one in five shoots to ground level to ensure continuous regeneration of a healthy young branching structure and ready show of flowers.  This variety is deciduous, with the leaves opening with a bronze tint, maturing to dark green in summer. The fruits of this shrub can cause a mild stomach ache if ingested.
