Cornus Alba Hedging

Cornus alba, Red Barked Dogwood, is a vigorous shrub with colourful young bark. It makes a good hedging plant and will grow on any soil. Cornus alba is a distinctive shrub with red stems, white fruit and decent autumn colour. The flowers aren't very big and are mostly hidden by the leaves, but they will attract bees and butterflies. It will grow in any soil, particularly damper sites. It is a great hedge plant and can also be hard pruned as a specimen shrub, although we suggest using on of the more brightly coloured ornamental varieties for this. Cornus alba is good for hedges up to about 3 metres high.

View our selection of dogwood plants or see our full range of hedging.

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

Spacing a Cornus alba hedge:
Plant Cornus alba hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
