'Ivory Halo' is grown for its bright red, deciduous stems in winter which catch the low sunlight brilliantly and its cream and green variegated foliage in summer. This Asian shrubby dogwood produces clusters of small yellow flowers that become white or blue fruit. The youngest stems have the best colour so trim out the old stems to the base in early spring.
