Cornus Alba Kesselringii - Purple Barked Dogwood

Cornus alba Kesselringii is a vigorous shrub with fabulous deep purple, almost black, young bark rich green foliage that turns a deep wine red in autumn. very dark bark does not sound the most exciting, but planted in a group with other dogwoods such as Cornus stolonifera Flaviramea (golden-green stems) and Cornus alba Sibirica (bright red bark) then Cornus alba Kesselringii makes the most stunning winter display. Breathtaking when there is snow on the ground. To add to all that, the stems are much loved by flower arrangers. So it is usually hard pruned as a specimen shrub, but it can be used in a mixed hedge if you like a bit of drama. It prefers a sunny spot and is suitable for any soil but will grow happily in a bog. Cornus alba Kesselringii will reach 3 metres.

Cornus alba Kesselringii plants are delivered bareroot during winter (Nov-April). Their height is measured in centimetres above the ground (the roots & pots aren't measured).
