Cornus Sanguinea Hedging

Cornus sanguinea is the native British dogwood. It is a large deciduous shrub with red/green stems in spring, white flowers in summer and black fruit in September and October. It is a great country hedge plant and is a classic component of mixed native hedges up to about 3-4 metres high. Cornus sanguinea is a bit too untidy to make it a good specimen shrub but it can be allowed to grow freely as wildlife cover in the wet sites it loves. For other dogwood bark colours, see our selection of dogwood varieties for sale.

Cornus sanguinea hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).

Choosing a size: When you are ordering dogwood plants for a hedge, we generally recommend that you use plants that are graded at 40/60cms or 60/80cms. They are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle and they will establish well in poor conditions. Use the larger, 90/120cms high plants if you want a tall hedge quickly, or for gaps in established hedges. All our plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground when planted

Spacing a Cornus sanguinea hedge: 

Plant Cornus sanguinea in mixed hedges 33cms apart.

History & uses of Common Dogwood: 

The name Dogwood comes from the Saxon Dagwood or "skewer-wood". The stems of Common Dogwood are very straight, can be sharpened easily and are ideal as skewers for your homemade barbeques during those long hot English summers.
