Cornus For November | Jo’s Top Picks

Blog Header

Different varieties of Cornus have a range of leaves and berries, but it is their colourful stems that they are really known for!


Where to plant

The shrub varieties of Cornus are commonly grown for their coloured stems. These varieties are able to grow in most soil conditions. They can even thrive in damp conditions, so are a good choice for areas of the garden where other shrubs may fail.

Planting Companions

Cornus work well planted as a focal point for an autumn / winter display under-planted with evergreen ornamental grasses or low lying shrubs.

Special Care

It is best not to prune newly planted Cornus for up to three years to allow the plant to get established.
