Brightest Red Red-Twig Dogwoods
I've been trying to compare the stems of a lot of the Red-Twig Dogwoods, though I don't have access to a lot of different varieties at the nurseries.
This is what I've been able to find so far:
Cornus alba 'Elegantissma' or 'Albovariegata'
Cornus alba IVORY HALO 'Bailhalo'
Cornus alba 'Gouchaultii'
Cornus sericea 'Bailey'
Cornus sericea 'Isanti' - This one beckons from afar.
Guesses (but I haven't actually seen these varieties)
Are these pictures accurate or color-corrected beyond belief?
- Dark Burgandy ????
Cornus sericea 'Hedgerow's Gold' - pink fall color
Cornus alba 'Alleman's Compact' - not susceptable to leaf spot
- Bright Red ????
Cornus sericea 'Cardinal' (http://www.northscaping.com/Images/LPSImages/Photos/A247-24.jpg)
-- This second picture of the 'Cardinal' isn't nearly as impressively bright red.
Cornus alba 'Siberica' or 'Westonbirt' - Siberica is variable
Cornus alba 'Siberica Ruby'
Cornus alba 'Siberian Pearls' - is this really this red?
Cornus alba 'CHIEF BLOODGOOD'
Cornus alba 'RED GNOME'
Can anyone compare my Bright Red guesses and 'Isanti' for color? Are these pictures accurate (especially the 'Siberian Pearls')? I'm really mostly interested in ones that will be showy from afar.
