This dogwood is mainly grown for it's yellow/green winter stems and variegated green and white foliage in the summer. Looks particularly good in winter planted in groups with other bark/stem coloured dogwoods. You need to chop this back to the main trunk each or every second or third spring to encourage fast growing coloured shoots. If left to grow as a large shrub the bark will take on a brown colouration with shorter less stunning coloured stems.
Plant in full sun to part shade with moist but well drained soil.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
