Cornus sanguinea 'Anny's Winter Orange'

Bloodtwig Dogwood

Plant Type:


Cornus sanguinea 'Anny's Winter Orange' - A vibrant shrub dogwood in the winter landscape, all stems are a mix of yellow, orange and flaming red with one color mixing and blending with the next; where the colors blend orange zones flourish. For those who know the lovely and gentle selection 'Winter Flame' alternately Anny's is on fluorescent fire! or on acid!! Spring brings typical white flattened coins in the form of corymbs, obviously many more in years when pruning is not applied. Late season berries... well, the birds will likely feast before your eyes have the chance! But if they miss 'em the fruits will mature to blackened purple. When autumn settles in green foliage turns yellow to red often in a mix as the stems begin to glow in their exceptional, fiery winter colors. This worthy form of Bloodtwig Dogwood will grow to 8 feet if left to its own genetic disposition; however, pruning will allow for many more younger, beautifully colored stems. As with all the shrub dogwoods with colorful bark the most beautifully colored bark will be had on youngest wood... Every two to three years get your loppers out and prune down to lower leaf buds just as they begin to swell early in the season. Fertile ground in part shade to full sun. Established potted Bloodtwig Dogwood from cutting.

Genus Overview: Cornus

Cornus. The Dogwoods come in many sizes – low growing shrubs to rounded trees. They are indispensable in a garden with almost all species and cultivars sporting four seasons of interest. Many exhibit richly-colored winter wood, attractive flowers and pretty berries in blue or white. Most offer terrific fall foliage color. The cultivars that offer gorgeous winter bark are especially well-used as background to lower growing evergeens or as foreground shrubs set before conifers, their stem colors glowing in winter against a backdrop of green, black-green, yellow or blue. All that produce flowers and fruit are very fine choices for the wildlife enthusiast. The trees provide nesting spots. When shrubs are grouped together these also provide nesting opportunities for some species of sparrows and even catbirds among others. The trees and shrubs provide nectar for bees and many other pollinators when in flower. Birds relish the late season fruits. All prefer fertile soils that retain some moisture between rain events. All of our offerings are cutting grown.
