Cornus controversa variegata (Wedding Cake Tree) Details

This variety of Cornus is an outstanding, deciduous tree. It is commonly referred to as the Wedding Cake Tree because of its tiered branches which bear variegated, cream and green leaves. The foliage retains this colouring until autumn when yellow tones develop before the leaves fall. Small, cream coloured flowers are borne in clusters through summer and are followed by black berries in autumn. It typically grows to 6 m tall and 4 m wide and is usually trimmed to enhance the shape. Best results with this tree are achieved when it is grown in full sun on a well-drained, sheltered site. It is tolerant of frost, cool climates, and short periods of dry. The Wedding Cake Tree makes an excellent specimen and is ideal for including in a mixed planting, using in avenue plantings, or planting to border an entranceway.
