Cleared the garden for winter looks a bit bare now I want a shrub that will add colour thru winter but my garden is only small so I want something that will be fairly compact I looked at dogwood because that is the sort of thing I am looking for but not grow so big.     Any ideas please



  • Midwinter Fire is usually a good one too.

    Sibirica is a very vibrant red - i don't think any of the cornus grown for stem colour grow too big, as you coppice them so regularly to keep the stems young and colourful.

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.
  • Thanks I will put that on my shopping list

    Actually Philippa your answer has piqued my interest in dogwood. I was thinking it would look really nice next to my pond image
