Plant details

One of Roy Lancaster's favourite multi-purpose trees, Cornus controversa 'Variegata' is a stunning sight in the garden. It makes a rounded tree with tiered branches. The foliage is bright green with bold, creamy-white margins, turning yellow in autumn. In early summer, it produces clusters of small white flowers, followed by blue-black fruit. Fully hardy, it has a height and spread of about 15m (50ft). Generally trouble-free, no pruning is required. It needs sun or partial shade and fertile, well-drained soil. The Royal Horticultural Society has judged it to be a plant of outstanding excellence, giving it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
