Product Information

A jaw-dropping display of magnificence that has been said to stop passers-by in their stride!

Commonly known as Dogwood, Empress of China is a striking evergreen Cornus that produces masses of dazzling white flowers through May in a display that is virtually unrivalled! The delightful blooms open a subtle mid-green, maturing to a creamy white and fill the branches.

These abundant flowers are followed by ornamental red fruits that will bring a variety of wild birds into your garden in late summer and will extend the season of colour through to autumn.

Graceful and vigorous, the healthy, bright green leaves stay on through the winter - unusually for a dogwood - making this an ornamental with year-round garden interest.

Surprisingly easy to grow, you don't need any specialist knowledge to get fabulous results - so anyone can grow this stunning shrub.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot. Reaches 4.5-5.5m, flowering in May - June.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Cornus angustata Dogwood 'Empress of China':

  • Grow in a partial shade in a sheltered site in well-drained soil.  Protect from frost and winds.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


 

Aftercare advice for Dogwood ‘Empress of China':

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Hardy to -15°C, protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants.

 

Pruning Advice for Dogwood:

  • Dogwood require no special pruning; only occasional maintenance is needed to remove any growth that has been damaged over winter.
