Red Stemmed Dogwood (Cornus alba) Hedge Plants Description

We have several varieties but they all have similar habits - creamy, white flowers in Spring, followed by blue/white berries, with oval dark green leaves, which redden in Autumn, and then fall to reveal the gorgeous brightly coloured stems. They look great with other species in a mixed hedge or standing on their own.

Dogwoods are very hardy and do well in sunny sites or partial shade and especially in moist areas. They are also very good in front of an evergreen hedge where normally nutrients, water and sunlight would be in short supply.

See also our ultimate Dogwood hedging guide for more information.

Robins and mistle thrushes love the berries in late Summer/early Autumn.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Dogwood Red

To get the brightest coloured stems, Dogwoods should be treated with "tough love" - dont prune them in the first year, but after that, before they bud (February/March) cut them down to a woody base within 4" of the ground every year, feed and water well and you will be rewarded with bright new shoots. Old plants can be regenerated by cutting out the old wood from the centre of the plant.
