Cornus alba sibirica, commonly known as Siberian dogwood or red-twig dogwood, is a popular deciduous shrub. It is a versatile and visually appealing shrub that can add beauty and interest to your garden, especially during the winter months when its red stems are most prominent. In late spring to early summer it produces small clusters of tiny white flowers followed by white to bluish-white fruit clusters in late summer. The berries of this dogwood can attract birds, making it a valuable plant for birdwatcher and wildlife enthusiasts. It can be used as a hedge, in mass plantings, or as a specimen shrub to add colour and structure to the garden.
Using bareroot specimens is a cost-effective alternative to pot grown plants and allows the plants to establish their root systems before the growing season starts.
This is a BARE ROOT plant which can be planted during dormant months, usually November until March. Dispatch date varies from year to year as plant can only be lifted when dormant. This plant has exposed roots and must be planted once received.
