Cornus sanguinea - Common Dogwood is a native shrub that grows well is wet soils and is normally found along woodland edges and in hedgerows. It is a good choice for game cover.
Deciduous with fresh green leaves that have distinctive curved veins. The leaves turn a rich crimson colour in the Autumnn.
Creamy white flowers are produced in clusters which once pollinated by insects develop into small black berries which are eaten by birds and mammals.
Our cell grown Dogwood plants are often used for hedge planting either on their own or mixed with other species such as Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Dog rose etc at a planting density of 6 plants per metre.
Cotoneaster lacteus - Milkflower Cotoneaster is a dense evergreen shrub that can be used for an informal hedge or screen.
Its main attraction is the clusters of creamy white flowers which persist all summer and then masses of red berries are produced in the autumn and stay on the plant until the winter.
This species has a wide arching habit with large leathery leaves with deep veins which have a furry underside.
Rosa rugosa Alba - Ramanas Rose is a large robust shrub that produces large, beautiful and very fragrant bowl shaped flower that are silky white. It flowers earlier than our native Dog Rose and often repeat flowers during the Spring and Summer. Very large, red hips follow the flowers.
The stems are covered in small spines which makes it ideal for an impenetrable and dense hedge or barrier.
A good all rounder. Attractive, good disease resistance, fast growing and very tolerant of exposure and coastal locations.
We also produce Rosa rugosa which has fuchsia pink flowers.
