Cornus alba Baton Rouge

Cornus alba Baton Rouge™

Dogwood - Tatarian

Baton Rouge™ ('Minbat') Tatarian Dogwood is particularly attractive in winter, when the young twigs become a showy scarlet.  The clean green leaves in summer turn to an attractive dark red in the fall.  The creamy flat-topped flower clumps appear in May and June, and are followed by interesting white berries in late summer.  Baton Rouge™ Dogwood forms a large clump eventually because of its suckering habit.  Prune back last year's twigs each winter, as the new growth is the most colorful.  A sport of C. 'Elegantissima', Baton Rouge™ comes from Minier Nursery in France, by the way of Bailey's First Editions™ program.

PRN Preferred:  Very dark red stems that color up early in fall.
