Strikingly Unique Native Shrub has All Season Appeal & Adds a WOW Factor!
The Yellow Twig Dogwood bush is a medium sized deciduous shrub that features golden yellow multi-stemmed branches for winter color, minimal white summer flowers, and gorgeous fall colored foliage in autumn.
Yellow Twig Dogwood shrub is a lovely four-season interest plant that has something to show off in every season. During late spring and early summer, green leaves shoot out, and eventually small, white flowers are inconspicuous and bloom in clusters. The Yellow Twig dogwood flowers are fragrant and attract pollinators to your winter garden.
The Cornus stolonifera flowers eventually mature to white berries that native birds love to munch on and provide an excellent food source during fall & winter when most other plants are dormant.
As summer turns to fall and temperatures drop, the green foliage changes to shades of red, orange, and purple to put on a magnificent display of seasonal change.
Yellow Twig Dogwood's native range is all across North America with the exception of the deep south. It loves wet and swampy areas and is commonly seen growing near riverbanks, streams, or bogs.
Grow this unusual flowering shrub in your landscape as stand alone plantings, grouped for visual interest as shrub borders, or in containers where the size can be maintained.
