Cornus sanguinea Midwinter Fire

Few plants can have such a dramatic effect in winter than Cornus Midwinter Fire, a shrub that without pruning would grow to 3-4 metres. Given a sunny situation where not too dry, and pruned annually in early spring Midwinter Fire will make a striking show from November until the end of March. The slender stems are orange at the base, suffusing to deep crimson at the tips creating from a distance a blazing fire, equally as showy on dull winter days as in sun.
