Cornus alba sibirica delight

24th April 2019

This is the right time to hard prune the Cornus species however a favourite of mine, Cornus alba sibirica variegata requires, in my view, a slightly different treatment .

I like to keep the youngest stems from the previous year in order to get an instant display of the lovely foliage as soon as it comes out. A total hard pruning can take weeks before new growth achieves a similar display.
