Guide to Dogwood Hedging image

Our ultimate guide to Dogwood Hedge Plants

Looking for an eye-catching, intensely coloured garden hedge? Look no further than the brilliant Dogwood. Also referred to as Cornus, the vivid colours exhibited by this wonderful plant are second to none as the fiery shades displayed truly dramatise its presence within a green space. Recognised by the RHS by receiving the prestigious Award of Garden Merit, the dazzling appearance of Dogwood makes this shrub a popular choice that can frequently be seen in show gardens, garden designs, parks as well as along watersides and paths, used for its ornamental value and ability to create a vibrant atmosphere.

A plant for all seasons; Dogwood showcases numerous attributes which bring added interest to a garden throughout the year. In spring, flat heads of creamy, white flowers burst into life followed by clusters of blue/white berries. The smooth, oval green leaves sit opposite each other along stems and offer fantastic autumn appeal as they turn a crisp, crimson colour. Being deciduous, the rusted leaves fall as the winter weather sets, thus allowing the decorative bark to take centre stage as the flamboyant colours are exaggerated while its branches are stripped of their leaves, allowing its structure to fully reveal its beauty. The attractive bark means that Dogwood holds important value for gardeners as we are constantly faced with the task of finding ways in which we can brighten up the garden during the winter gloom, until fresh foliage and spring flowers emerge. Its not only us green finger enthusiasts who appreciate the numerous characteristics of Dogwood as heaps of garden wildlife are attracted to this multipurpose hedging plant. The spring flowers entice bees and butterflies, whilst a range of British birds adore the autumn berries. Its dense, thick framework which the intricate stems and branches create, forms a sheltered nesting site for birds and a protected habitat for smaller animals.

Dogwood Planting


Planting a single variety of Dogwood will produce a fantastic looking feature, but for an even more exciting appearance, plant a combination of the coloured varieties we supply to create a unique, contrasting hedge. We stock a great range of Dogwood varieties so you can access a selection of enthralling colours. Choose the dark maroon shade of Cornus alba Sibirica, the striking red of Cornus alba, the alluring orange of Cornus sanguinea or the captivating yellow of Cornus stolonifera. Dogwood plants also make a great addition to a native hedgerow. Its contribution to a mixed native feature brings added visual interest in the form of divergent shapes, textures and colour. You can also plant this species in front of large, evergreen hedges as the taller backdrops embellish the eye-catching stem colours. Brighter colours are emitted by new growth.

Dogwood Pruning and Aftercare


Therefore, to get the best from your Dogwood and to gain the distinctive colours this plant is famous for, pruning is a must. Dogwood is as tough as it looks and will thrive after a harsh cut back. In spring, before the buds appear, remove almost a third of the stem. It has a quick growth rate with an annual reach of 40-60cm so dont worry about removing so much, it will grow back. We recommend cutting them back to about 5-10cm above ground level, this will produce more radiant bark in winter. Dogwood is a hardy plant which will thrive in most normal soils and grows especially well in rich, lightly damp sites. For Dogwood to parade its colours more vigorously, plant in positions fully exposed to the sun, however theres no need to be afraid of planting in the shade as it poses no threat to successful and healthy growth. Dogwood will thrive in screened areas, making it the perfect plant to bring life and colour to the darker parts of your garden.
