Variegations in the Summer Garden

By July after most shrubs and trees have flowerd the beauty of foliage can be amazing, and one good way to introduce this into the summer garden is with variegated foliage. For a small tree/large shrub choose perhaps from the Wedding Cake Tree Cornus controversa ‘Variegata’ (foliage shown on Home page) with its tiered branches of bold margined leaves. Also the delightful winter flowering Cornus mas ‘Variegata’ (see below) can create spectacular effects.
