Wedding Cake Tree (Cornus Controversa Variegata)

The Wedding Cake Tree-Cornus Controversa Variegata tree. A small, slow growing graceful tree for any size garden. In Spring the leaves open bright green with a good cream border. The horizontal layered branches produces clusters of white flowers in June. In autumn berries are blue/black good for birds and the leaves turn to red/purple. Even when all the leaves have fallen this still makes a pleasant tree to admire because of its interesting tiered look. Best position would be in full sun and likes a moisture retentive site. When planting would benefit from well rotted garden compost or horse manure in the planting hole. Prefers a more sheltered spot out of cold winds. Would not recommend pruning this tree as it would interfere with its tiered look.

Eventual height approx. 5 meters


Sunny sheltered position out of cold winds. Moist site -soil humus rich
