Cornus alba 'Westonbirt' is a vigorous, medium-sized, suckering, deciduous shrub, popular for its stunning, scarlet red winter bark. Its bare, bright red stems make an outstanding display from November to March, especially after a snowfall. It has green leaves that turn red and orange in autumn and small, white flowers in early summer, followed by white berries, tinged blue in autumn. Cornus alba 'Westonbirt' prefers average, moist, slightly acidic soils that are well-drained, but will grow in almost any soil condition, even waterlogged, in full sun or partial shade. Generally, pest-free. Easy to grow and low maintenance. It should be pruned hard in spring to enhance stem colour. Cornus alba 'Westonbirt' is a dogwood originally cultivated at Westonbirt Arboretum in the 1830s. It’s a great winter feature, good as a specimen plant, but even better when planted in groups. Perfect for cottage and informal gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
