Siberian dogwood is native to eastern Russia, northeastern China, and North Korea. It is not
found in the wild in North America.
Identification: Wild Siberian dogwood is about 8' (2.4 m)
around, but cultivated varieties are both larger and smaller. This variety is smaller—4-6' (1.2-1.8 m) around.
Deep red stems with small sparsely placed lenticels look very attractive in the winter.
This variety, called both ‘Bailhalo’ and ‘Ivory Halo,’ is variegated: leaves have uneven patches of white around
their edges. Leaves are 2-4½" (5-11 cm) long, and turn purple-brown in the fall.
White (or yellow-white) blooms appear on growth that is at least 2-3 years old between May and June.
