Red Barked Westonbirt Dogwood Plants
Cornus Alba Sibirica Hedging
Cornus alba Sibirica, Siberian or Westonbirt Dogwood, is a vigorous dogwood with rich red young bark. Also known as Cornus Westonbirt, this strong-growing, deciduous shrub has green leaves that turn red and orange in the autumn. Sibirica dogwood's primary feature, however, is its brilliant scarlet bark, which provides much-needed winter colour and can light up the dreariest day. Like all dogwoods, it prefers moist soils and will grow in very wet conditions. It makes a good specimen shrub but is probably at its best when planted in a group with other dogwoods with coloured bark. As such, it makes a very long term (November - March) winter feature which lights up the garden on the most dismal days and is simply stunning in snow of frost. If allowed Cornus alba Sibirica will reach 3 metres, but it is better coppiced every year. This variety was cultivated at Westonbirt Arboretum in the 1830's and holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit
