Baton Rouge' is considered by many to be the best dogwood available. Compact and bushy this variety has white flowers in the spring followed by blue berries in the summer. The foliage turns from dark green to a beautiful red and burnt orange shade during the autumn.
However Baton Rouge is at its best in the winter when the vivid red stems contrast strikingly with the bleak and frosty landscape. It provides colour and architectural beauty when all else is dull.
