European Variegated Dogwood  'Cornus alba 'Argenteo-marginata'

 

 

 

 

 
This is one of the larger ornamental shrubs with attractive cream and green variegated foliage. Can be pruned to any size-small, medium, or let to grow large.This plant has year-round appeal in the landscape, displaying variegated leaves in summer and vibrant red branches in winter. It needs sun to partial shade; prefers moist, well-drained soil but tolerates a range of soil conditions. It is rapid growing and has showy, green and white variegated leaves that last till fall. Dramatic in mass plantings and works well in the small home garden. Prune hard in late winter because the new growth is the most brilliantly colored. Gorgeous to add color with year round interest to any landscape.
