Product Information



Commonly known as Red Twig Dogwood or Red Osier Dogwood.

Native to the USA this fast growing multi-stemmed deciduous shrub has bright cherry red stems in winter.

Cornus Cardinal grows particularly well near water and is very effective when grown in front of a light coloured background.

Superb with a snowy backdrop or when combined with other dogwoods with contrasting stem colours especially yellows.

If you need to add a bold splash of colour to the garden in mid-winter then Cornus Cardinal is the perfect choice..

Flat cymes of white flowers are borne in late spring followed by clusters of creamy white fruit much beloved by birds.

A very robust shrub Cornus Cardinal will tolerate a wide range of soils but prefers a moist  site.

Best winter colour is obtained when grown in full sun and the plant is pruned down to 2-3 buds above ground level in spring.

Wonderful in a winter garden.

All pictures used are of mature plants in full bloom and may not necessarily reflect plants at all times of the year.

Plants supplied ex. 10cm pots approx.10-12 inches tall, they can be planted out immediately but best results are obtained when they are grown on for a short time in a slightly larger container before transplanting to their final growing positions

If ordering a number of items please email us at     before paying and we will send an Invoice by return.

We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us at within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll.
