Best dogwoods for stem colour

Posted: 08/12/2013 at 10:28

I have reservations about Midwinter Fire. It's a stunning colour but it's not robust like some of them. I get bits of die back at the ends of stems and the spring leaf colour is uninspiring. Maybe it's my soil and not the fault of the shrub though.

I wouldn't choose by name, I'd go to a nursery that stocks them and choose by colour

Mines a thicket, about 12 foot tall and nearly as much across. Overdue for the haircut. I expect the great tit to move in again before I get it done next spring.

Pulmonaria rubra isn't exciting but it never gets mildew which can be a drawback of pulmonariain summer

I could offer a good recipe for a nut cutlet otherwise

Could we have a photo of what it looks like now? If it only has branches at the top it will looks silly cut off as Welshonion says. If it has branches all the way down you can prune to the shape you want.

I don't have much success with these. I thought it might be because they get thrown out with weeds but I wonder if I planted too deeply. I can't remember how deeply, I haven't tried them lately.

That's a shame, a bit rude as well to interview and not let you know

Any time between now and February depending on the type, the weather and where you live. I can see potential flowers on a lot of mine but nothing out yet
