Cornus florida is a large, deciduous shrub or a small tree with spreading habit, gracious horizontal branches, and oval, mid-green leaves that turn purple and scarlet-red in autumn. The mature bark has a distinctive pattern that looks like alligator skin. Lovely, star-like, creamy white flowers emerge before the leaves and are followed by red- berries in early autumn. Attractive to birds and butterflies. Cornus florida grows best in fertile, acidic to neutral, moist but well-drained soils, in partial shade. It tolerates full sun, but in summer, it needs to be sheltered if planted in exposed places. Generally, pest-free. Low maintenance, it doesn’t require pruning. Cornus florida, with its showy flowers and stunning foliage colours, is a beautiful landscape tree, attractive all year round. It is perfect as a specimen plant and equally lovely when planted in groups. Great around patios, in lawns, or in woodland gardens.

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).
