Best dogwoods for stem colour

Posted: 09/12/2013 at 21:43

I have the red stemed one really like that and thanks to someones help on here have got more plants from the plant as they got cut to near ground level I put them in a bucket of water and left them they rooted nicely left in a bucket of water so will do that again.

Also have Midwinter fire one plant in front garden had to be moved a little as it was not likeing the spot has also got bit on the top of the plant not doing well better now it has been moved

Would like some of the yellow plant, looks nice and bright and I like yellow

Dogwood is great plant - colour for winter and also look nice when in leaf.

Think it is a pop to the GC when stems are bright this time of year to pick out your plants

Really like the way this programme was shown really informative, less rubbish up the station now there is a flower bed with plants - gardening is so helpful and enjoyable for people to look at
