Reddish-orange stems of dogwood 'Anny's Winter Orange'

Best dogwoods for winter colour

We recommend our favourite dogwoods (Cornus) for their fiery winter stems.

Dogwoods can be loosely divided into two groups: flowering dogwoods and dogwoods with colourful stems.

Colourful-stemmed dogwoods are upright shrubs which lose their leaves in autumn to reveal stems in warm crimsons, yellows, oranges and ochres, guaranteed to cut through any winter gloom.
