Wedding Cake Tree (Cornus Controversa Variegata

The Wedding Cake Tree-Cornus Controversa Variegata trees . 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. 15 meters


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