This beautiful cultivar of the hardy "Japanese Dogwood" has won a RHS Award of Garden Merit.
When the flowers first open, they tend to be creamy-white flushed pink but slowly change to a beautiful salmon-pink colour.
It may take a few years to develop this bright pink colour.
The foliage turns red and purple in autumn.
It performs best in good well drained soil and protected from hot drying winds.
It is capable of reaching approximately 5 metres by 4 metres.
