Dogwood Trees

Dogwood trees are often loved for their stunning bracts during Spring, and are a popular item for bridal bouquets and floral arrangements, but what about the cooler months? This month, our Kilby dogwoods have shown off their spectacular Autumn foliage.

At the farm we currently have three dogwood options available. All dogwoods available feature bright green leaves, beautiful flower bracts with insignificant petals in the centre, and in summer will develop ornamental fruit that birds love.

#3: Cornus ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’:

Cornus ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’ has a narrow form and lax layered branching habit with stunning white bracts. This option is a hybrid of Cornus Florida and Cornus Nutallii and made resistant to dogwood anthracnose. Like all dogwoods, Eddies White Wonder makes for a wonderful backdrop layer to garden designs, or stands alone as a stunning tree.
