Bloodtwig Dogwood (Cornus Sanguinea) 20 seeds (#687)

Bloodtwig dogwood is a multi-stemmed, large, deciduous shrub with upright branches and a spreading, suckering habit. This European native is grown for its colorful young stems of blood red that turn dark red-green to brown as they age. In early summer it produces many flattened, rounded clusters of white flowers followed by small, oval, blue-black fruits that are attractive to birds. In autumn, its green simple leaves turn shades of yellow and orange before dropping. The twigs are also brightly colored and remain attractive through winter.
This shrub grows best in sites with full sun to partial shade and fertile, well-drained but moist soil. It suckers readily and should be hard pruned each year, while dormant, to keep colorful new branches coming and to maintain a manageable size. Cold tolerant and tough, bloodtwig dogwood is a great plant for an informal screen or naturalistic garden. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

3. Sow the seeds ~2 mm deep in the mix. Moisten the seeds and place the flat in a cold frame or in the refrigerator at +2-+4C for 120 days. Keep the seeds moist during this period.
4. Remove the flat from the refrigerator and place it in an area with indirect sunlight and where the temperature remains between +15-+20 C (60-68 F).
5. Keep in good ventilated room or place. Good air circulation is required.
