Incredible Color from a Tough Shrub
The Yellow Twig Dogwood is known for its...
• fluorescent color during gloomy winter months
• low maintenance
• incredible adaptability
• vibrant gold color
Show-Stopping Color for All Seasons
Beginning in spring, the Yellow Twig Dogwood's stalks turn from bright yellow to deep green with the budding of new foliage. Stalks and leaves will remain an elegant emerald green through summer and provide a vivid backdrop for the gorgeous white star-shaped flowers that appear.
Late summer brings the onset of fruit, and clusters of snowy white berries will form that are a favorite cold-weather treat among numerous varieties of songbirds and other forms of wildlife.
In the fall, the stems begin their own gradual transformation from green to their eventual brilliant gold. This provides a unique pop of color in your landscape, and truly stands out in the gloomy winter months.
By winter, all the lovely foliage and fruit has fallen and the Yellow Twig Dogwood has completely altered its appearance becoming a radiant showstopper. The shrub is now a thicket of bright yellow branches, only enhancing the golden color of the sun's rays glistening down on the winter landscape.
Plant it Anywhere
Maturing to a height of 6-8 feet with a spread of around 5-6 feet, this shrub makes a wonderful privacy screen and will fit into tight spots easily. It gives you an incredible show of color when planted in rows.
Low-Maintenance and Easy to Grow
Drought and cold tolerant, the Yellow Twig Dogwood is a fabulous option for adding texture and color to any outdoor living space. It performs best in full sun, but can tolerate partial shade.
Great for that wet spot in your landscape
For those wet planting areas you need to install a swamp-loving plant. The Yellow Twig Dogwood is a native of low-lying wetlands. As with most water-loving shrubs, this one will grow quickly as long as consistent moisture is available. Once established, this bush will tolerate a light drought.
Perfect for Hills- Yellow Twig Dogwoods Stop Soil Erosion
Plants that are native to wetlands tend to have shallow, spreading roots... perfect for preventing soil erosion. You will often see them planted in groups on hills for erosion control.
