There are 2 main types of dogwood when you first think of Cornus, the first being the shrubby, brightly coloured stem types that we see come the autumn/winter months.
Then you have the flowering varieties which are usually grown as Cornus trees rather than shrubs, these are loved for their unusual yet attractive flowers.
These ones really need to be centre of attention with great autumn foliage colour as well.
Where to site your Cornus
Cornus are best planted in a woodland garden or as a specimen tree.
How to grow and look after your Cornus
Require well-drained, fertile soil but can also tolerate damp conditions and prefer a neutral to acidic soil.
