A beautiful cornus with evergreen foliage that can be up to 12cm long on mature plants. Can be grown as a large spreading shrub or as a small tree and in summer the clusters of green flowers are surrounded by brilliant white bracts. These are then followed by hanging edible but bitter strawberry like fruits. Best in part shade with a moist but well drained soil that is on the acid to neutral side. Maximum height 12 meters with a spread up to 8 meters.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
