Plant of the week - Cornus (Dogwood)

Luckily down here in Dorset we escaped the snow but it was still jolly cold. On Sunday we wrapped up warm and headed across the border to Hampshire, to the Harold Hillier Arboretum.

I have exhausted my garden of winter photo opportunities, so it was time to visit a garden, planted especially for winter colour and scent.

My plant this week is the Cornus. Harold Hillier have planted lots of varieties, with different coloured stems. This red variety is particularly vibrant and just lit up the garden like a beacon. It just makes you feel warm looking at it.
