Large clusters of white flowers in June, followed by spherical, blue-black fruit, and glossy, dark green leaves, turning rich red and purple in autumn. The horizontally tiered spreading branches of this deciduous dogwood provide an excellent focal-point for a medium-sized garden. Rounded in shape, it performs best in fertile, moisture-retentive soil in full sun.Position: full sun to part shade
Soil: deep, fertile, moisture-retentive soil
Rate of growth: slow-growing to average
Flowering period: June
Flower colour: white
Other features: the fruits may cause a mild stomach ache if ingested
Hardiness: fully hardy Garden care: Incorporate a quantity of well-rotted garden compost or horse manure in the planting hole to improve the moisture-retentive qualities of the soil. The tree requires no regular pruning, since this would interfere with its graceful, tiered habit
Goes well with: Lonicera fragrantissima, Galanthus nivalis, Anemone x hybrida, Myrtus communis, Crocus chryanthus 'Herald', Kerria japonica
