Cornus florida subsp. urbiniana (syn. pringlei)

A most unusual Mexican subspecies, bearing flowers with their showy white bracts clasping at their tips; never splaying out and therefore giving the appearance of lanterns. Most effective visually and very almost unique amongst Cornus. A free growing and hardy large shrub, this is a great success in Seattle for example, with a similar climate to parts of the UK. Not good on very thin chalky soils.

Pot size: 2L
