FAll Color on Cornus sanguinea ‘compressa’

November 7, 2013

We love this unusual dogwood that has army green puckered leaves arranged tightly on a distinct axis. It turns an interesting and lovely chocolate or deep purple in the fall.  It is relatively new for us but sources say that it grows to  6-8 ft by 3-4 ft wide. It is easily propagated by cuttings made Image during summer and early fall under mist.
