Tatarian (red-barked) dogwood is a reliable shrub that is mostly used in parks and towns where it requires no maintenance at all and can stand pollution, adverse growing conditions and is pest and disease free.

Sibirica is a Tatarian dogwood variety which offers the deepest colour of its twigs, especially in winter months. They are rich red or burgundy red and look best above a solid layer of fresh snow on a sunny day. In spring emerge 5-7 long, deciduous, irregularly ovate, mid green leaves that turn pale red in autumn. In late spring appear small, white flowers in red calyxes, composed in almost flat cymes, and are followed by white, spherical berries in late summer and autumn. It is a fast grower.

This care-free shrub will grow in almost any soil, preferably in full sun, 2-3m wide and tall. It can be trimmed from end spring until mid summer, or even cut back to some 10-20 cm above ground level if grown for the stem colour. Fully hardy to min. -40°C.
