This is a stunning tree with two seasons of interest that really earns its place in the garden. In May it produces masses of tiny purplish-green flowers surrounded by large showy white flower bracts. In autumn the mid-green leaves turn brilliant shades of orange red and purple. This broadly conical dogwood is an excellent specimen tree for small gardens. Although it tolerates dappled shade, it performs best in a sunny site with fertile moisture-retentive soil.

Garden Care: Incorporate a quantity of well-rotted garden compost or horse manure in the planting hole to improve the moisture retentive qualities of the soil.
