Distinctive Features of Orange Dogwood

The Orange Dogwood Hedging, scientifically known as Cornus Sanguinea, is renowned for its striking appearance and ease of maintenance.

During the spring and summer, it showcases lush green foliage, while autumn brings a transformation into fiery oranges and reds.

Growth and Maintenance

Effortless Elegance: Growing Your Orange Dogwood

One of the most appealing aspects of the Orange Dogwood Hedging is its adaptability and resilience. Thriving in a variety of soil types, from well-drained to moist, it’s a versatile choice for many garden settings. It prefers full sun to partial shade, ensuring vibrant stem colours. Pruning in late March is recommended to encourage the growth of new stems that will display the most colour in the following winter.

Year-Round Appeal

A Symphony of Colours Throughout the Seasons

The Orange Dogwood Hedging is not just a winter wonder; it offers visual interest throughout the year. In spring, it greets you with fresh green leaves, which are complemented by small, white flowers that attract a variety of pollinators. As autumn arrives, the leaves turn a stunning shade of orange, harmonising with the vivid stem colour that becomes the focal point in winter.

Environmental Benefits

A Haven for Wildlife and a Boost for Biodiversity

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Cornus Sanguinea Hedging plays a significant role in supporting local wildlife. It provides shelter and nesting opportunities for birds, while its flowers are a valuable source of nectar for bees and butterflies. Planting this hedging contributes to increasing biodiversity in your garden.
