Cornus sanguinea ‘Midwinter Fire’

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile
  • Rate of growth: Fast Growing
  • Flowering period: June
  • Flower colour: pinkish-white
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

The green leaves of this upright, deciduous shrub turn bright shades of orange-yellow in autumn, before they fall to reveal spectacular orange, red and yellow bare stems. Position in full sun for best colour.

Garden care: For best stem colour, cut the stems back hard to within 5-7cm (2-3in) from the ground in March and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or horse manure around the base of the plant.
