An elegant, large evergreen shrub or small tree, this slow growing Dogwood is a perfect anchor for the shrubby border. Handsome, curved leathery leaves with light green veins provide a pleasing texture and turn bronze in the winter months. Buttonlike flower heads surrounded by creamy yellow bracts precede the long lasting, prominent, pinkish red strawberry-shaped fruit that appears in November and can be brought inside as a colorful complement to holiday greenery.

Blooms June

Size: 16' high x 8' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

We love Cistus populifolius for it's big, beautiful red buds that adorn it's handsome foliage all winter. The unique apple green foliage has decorative rippled margins and comprises dense hearty mounds, creating a luxurious backdrop for its yellow-centered white flowers. Big red-hued buds appear in late winter and look stunning with the verdant leaves and springtime tissue-thin blooms.
