Flowering Dogwood - Cornus florida (latin)

Area of origin: Northern America.
Adult dimensions: Height up to 6 m, width up to 3 m.
Foliage: Deciduous, dark green.
Type of soil: Doesn’t like chalky soil. Moist and humid, but free draining.
Hardiness: Hardy to -29°C.
Exposure: Sun. Sheltered from hot and dry wind.

Properties and uses:
Superb star shaped blossom at the beginning of spring, in a shade of green, framed by four extremely decorative petals. It needs to be watered regularly during hot summers as this Cornus can suffer from lack of water. It can be planted either on its own or in mixed hedges. Its small, round, vivid red fruits appear from the end of the summer right through to the beginning of winter.
