Dogwood hedge - Vivid Red (Cornus alba 'Sibirica') description

The green foliage of this Vivid Red Dogwood turns fiery red in the autumn. Once the leaves have fallen, this hedging shrub really earns its name - the red stemmed dogwood, leaving vivid red stems that stand out a mile in the dull winter landscape. Blue berries are popular with birds and white spring flowers make a pretty display.

Care advice for Cornus alba 'Sibirica'

Vivid Red Dogwood benefits from a "less is more" trimming approach. It does not need pruning in its first year. After that, Cornus alba 'Sibirica' should be cut right back to approximately 4 inches from the ground. By pruning this much in February/March, before the buds appear, it encourages more brightly coloured shoots.  Alternatively, if that's too drastic for you, prune every other plant so you retain some height for the summer but achieve the good stem colour in winter. Please view the Best for Hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
