A shrub with beautiful soft-golden foliage from spring until late summer which do not burn in strong sunlight. These leaves gradually turn lovely shades of pink and red in autumn.
In late autumn and winter the new shoots turn a fine, bright-red and these stems provide a great deal of winter colour until the following spring when the leaves re-emerge.
The plant in this video is a 3 - 4 year old Cornus alba 'Aurea' in mid September 2016. The stems are bright red in winter.
This plant is pruned back hard to 1ft above ground level each March.
