Dog Wood (Cornus sibirica) are quick growing with vivid crimson red coloured stems in winter. Cornus is perfect for coastal areas. It is a deciduous hedging plant with dark green leaves and small clusters of white flowers early summer followed by small white berries. Winter brings the crimson red twigs or stems exploding into a colourful display where ever planted. Cornus is a proven hedging plant and should be pruned each year (February) to maintain the quality of the plant.
Dog wood is great for coastal areas as they will tolerate those winds and salt spray.
