Ivory Halo Dogwood
Cornus alba `Bailhalo`
This dogwood is grown for its variegated foliage and stem color in winter. Its oval leaves are light green edged in white. It grows 4 to 6 feet tall and wide and new stems are a bright red color in the winter, giving it four seasons of interest. This shrub will also produce small white flowers followed by whitish berries in the fall that attract birds.
Older stems do need to be pruned out every few years if winter twig color is desirable. It grows well in full sun to part shade and consistently moist soil. It works best as a foundation plant, as a mass planting, or as a hedge.
