Cornus Contraversa Variegata

Cornus controversa ‘Variegata,’ commonly known as Variegated Wedding Cake Tree is a deciduous ornamental tree valued for its distinctive tiered branching pattern and attractive variegated foliage.

The most notable feature of Cornus controversa ‘Variegata’ is its striking variegated leaves. The foliage is typically green with creamy-white margins, creating a beautiful contrast and adding visual interest to the tree. This tree has a unique tiered or “wedding cake” branching structure, where the branches are arranged in horizontal layers. The tiered effect becomes more pronounced as the tree matures.

The Variegated Wedding Cake Tree is a medium-sized tree that can reach a height of about 4.5 to 8 meters, with a spread of roughly the same.

In late spring to early summer, the tree produces small, creamy-white flowers in flattened clusters. While the flowers are not as prominent as those of some other dogwood varieties, they add a delicate touch to the overall aesthetics. Following the flowering period, the tree may develop small berries that transition from green to bluish-black. These berries can attract birds to the garden.

The Variegated Wedding Cake Tree is often used as an ornamental focal point in gardens and landscapes, where its unique branching structure and variegated foliage can be showcased. It adds a touch of elegance and interest to a variety of settings.
