Cornus positively glowing in the little bit of sunshine I get in my garden at this time of year ☀️What a good spot to plant it...almost like I’d planned it! 🤔😉 #cornus #dogwood #winterstems

Well as it’s always sunny in Cumbria 😜 you should have no trouble placing them in the sunshine! But they are a fab plant and look amazing with either silver birches and/or snowdrops 👍🏼 @cotehow

One of my all time favourites, fresh green and white in the summer and red hot stems in the winter. Win win! 💚❤️ #variegated #dogwood #favourite

Had this many moons ago. Red stems brighten up the winter days as do the yellow stemmed dogwood ❤💛❤💛

Love them Pearl. Bought a yellow one this year to sit alongside this one. Looking forward to seeing them together ❤️💛 @fuschia

I do Rachel. Your encouragement has prompted me to make it happen. I'll have a display in the woods, but visible from the house. I've got 3 types now, but have propagated several of the osiers to go with the snowdrops I'm ordering soon. I think it will bring me to 10 or 12 in one area! So stoked about it. All thanks to your ideas. It became a vision to me.

The flowers on this dogwood are quite often not mentioned at all or called insignificant, but I think they're very pretty - if you take the time to look 😊
