Quick Overview:

Celestial Shadow Dogwood (Cornus x ‘Celestial Shadow’) is the serendipitous result of crossing two dogwood species to produce a second-generation hybrid with improved disease resistance. The goal was achieved, and the icing on the cake was the surprise appearance of variegated leaves! You’ve never seen dogwood foliage like this — Celestial Shadow Dogwood’s leaves are green, creamy-white and canary yellow. And that’s just in spring and summer; the autumn foliage is also a knockout with variegated shades of red, pink and purple!  White blooms in mid to late spring.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, organically rich, acidic soils in part shade. Benefits from a 2-4″ mulch which will help keep roots cool and moist in summer.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
