Cornus Alba Elegantissima

This is a vigorous shrub with red young bark and variegated leaves. Cornus alba Elegantissima is generally used as an ornamental shrub. A wonderfully easy, fast-growing plant, this shrubby dogwood has variegated foliage. Its leaves have a jagged, creamy margin and an olive green centre and it produces small white flowers in May and June, which are followed by white fruit that sometimes has a hint of pale blue. Neither of these is very showy, however, and most gardeners grow Cornus alba Elegantissima for the glistening red bark of its new stems, which can transform a frozen winter landscape, especially when planted en masse. Dogwoods love moisture and are perfect plants to go on a river bank, in marshy areas or a bog garden. It makes a fine hedge plant, but Cornus alba is cheaper and just as good.
Cornus alba Elegantissima will reach 3 metres.

See our selection of dogwoods for sale or view our full range of hedging plants.

Cornus alba Elegantissima plants are delivered bareroot during winter (Nov-April). All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

History & uses of Elegantissima Dogwood: This variety was bred at the turn of the 20th century. It won the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 2002.


Planting times for barerrot plant is November to April
