Strawberry Daiquiri® Siberian Dogwood

Cornus alba 'Stdazam'

Refreshing, bright green, variegated foliage with creamy white margins throughout spring and summer celebrates the onset of fall with shades of pink, orange and purple. Creamy white spring flowers yield ornamental berries in summer. Amid the frosty winter chill, the bare, strawberry-red stems enliven the landscape. Best color in full sun.

Apply a balanced fertilizer regularly during growing season. Maintain stem color by cutting most canes back a few inches from the ground in late winter.
