| The dogwood Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter
Fire' is without doubt an impressive plant during winter. The trouble is
that it is an uninteresting weedy-looking shrub for the rest of the year
and a strongly suckering one at that. I removed it (with great trouble)
from the 'meadow' and now it grows on one of the damp terraces at the rear
of the house. Despite its striking looks during winter this dogwood tested
my patience to the full and I eventually removed totally from the garden.
Nevertheless, if I had a garden with the space I would most certainly give
it another go.
