Cornus Midwinter Fire starts to show off

Here is the fabulous Cornus ‘Midwinter Fire”. It is has rich coloured autumn foliage and then the stems are stunning once the leaves have dropped. It looks great from now until spring, and low sun makes it glow during winter months. Planted with Chinese lanterns (invasive but oh so worth a bit of extra weeding) and Nandina ‘Fire power’, it is a great combination. The evergreen Euphorbia in the foreground is self seeded and makes a splendid foliage shape contrast. Fortuitous. I love that about gardening, sometimes something arrives where you want it, instead of where you don’t.
