Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter fire'

Posted: 25/05/2014 at 22:15

They're not strong enough growers to cut back every year like some.

But nothing else has that stunning colour does it.

There's fine stand of them at Anglesey Abbey. Look brilliant in the sunshine.

Mine good one is about 10 foot tall, maybe 15 years inplace. never been cut, it's gone naturally into a horizontal layer look like some cornus do and I don't want to lose that

I have two of these. One has never given a moment's trouble, the other is about to be put though the shredder.

I think they're a weak cultivar. beautiful if everything is right but quick to look poor. Your brown stems I know well, also very anaemic looking leaves early in the season which the good one has to some extent.

I'd give it time, don't let it dry out but don't overdo it. Don't feed an invalid. You've given it a good start.

You might as well cut off the dead bits, it will lokk better for that

More ID's please woderful people

Looks like one of the artemesias. Can you nip out and see if it has a very strong smell to the leaves when you bruise them
