A striking ornamental shrub, this Conus alba, the Siberian Dogwood, forms a thicket of upright red stems.
It has green foliage with oval leaves during spring and summer. Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', bees and butterflies are attracted to the clusters of lovely soft pink flowers that appear in from late spring to mid-summer. These are followed by black berries that will attract birds.
In autumn the leaves take on fiery red hues before dropping to fully reveal the stems, which change from red to an intense scarlet during the winter.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for a stunning display for many years to come.
Fully winter hardy, Dogwoods are a popular shrub for any garden or even a large container as they are unfussy and are both easy to grow and low maintenance, providing year round interest. They will grow in sun or partial shade, but be aware that Dogwoods produce the best stem colour when grown in full sun.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2 L pot, ready to plant, growing to a height and spread of 2.5 m (8 ft).
