Variegated Dogwood
no image

Variegated Dogwood is a small shrub that is often used in the first row of a shelterbelt, as a hedge, or for soil stabilization projects. It has the same distinctive red bark, white flowers, and berries as Red Osier Dogwood.

The key difference between the two is the leaves. Where Red Osier's leaves are green throughout, Variegated Dogwood has a white outline around each leaf, giving this shrub a distinctive look.

The Korean Maple is an ideal accent tree, and is similar in size and shape to the Japanese Maple, but much hardier.

The leaves have long, finger-like lobes that turn striking shades of yellow, orange and red in autumn.

It is recommended that pruning be done during the summer after the leaves have fully developed to ensure sap does not "bleed" down the tree.
