This striking shrub provides a spring highlight in the Gilbert Carter Woodland.
One of several dogwoods renowned for it’s flowers, rather than for it’s coloured winter stems, Cornus ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’ creates great impact with it’s globose, compact flower heads set amidst broad white bracts. The ovate foliage can take on red and purple hues in autumn. Reaching 6m in height, it has a broadly conical, bushy habit, and enjoys humus-rich, fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. It was raised from a hybrid of C. florida and C. nuttallii by Henry Eddie of Vancouver, Canada, in 1945.
