Cornus sanguinea, or Bloodtwig Dogwood, is an upright, bushy, multi-stemmed, suckering, deciduous shrub popular for its attractive, vivid red stems and twigs, which look fantastic in winter gardens. The stems are golden yellow at the base of the plant and gradually turn orange and fiery red towards the tip of the plant. Its leaves are dark green and reddish-purple in autumn. The clusters of small, white flowers bloom in summer and are followed by dark purple berries in autumn. Cornus sanguinea can grow in almost any type of soil, but thrives in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils, in full sun or partial shade. For the brightest winter bark, it needs to be planted in full sun. Generally, pest-free. It requires pruning to encourage the growth of new stems. Cornus sanguinea is spectacular when planted in groups, in shrub borders or as an informal hedge. Great for urban, cottage and coastal 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).
