CORNUS alba 'Bailhalo'(IVORY HALO®) PP8722
Ivory Halo® Dogwood, Tatarian Dogwood
A selection of Tatarian dogwood, which is native from northern Russia to Korea, ‘Bailhalo’ is prized for its leaves outlined with white, the bright red color of its stems and branches in winter, and its year-round toughness. It is a multi-stemmed, spreading, compact, deciduous shrub with clusters of small white flowers in spring followed by clusters of small white fruits, often tinged blue. It has dark green tapered leaves that turn red or orange in autumn. Though this northern species may scorch in hot climates, it has some tolerance for drought.
Plant ‘Bailhalo’ in full to partial sun and well-drained soil. It is most effective as an informal hedge, massed in a large group, or as a showy accent plant in the border or a large container. It spreads by underground roots so it is also useful for stabilizing banks and slopes. Some gardeners prune this shrub to the ground in winter, foregoing bloom to prompt the growth of new stems in spring because their color is the brightest red.
