Yellow Twig Dogwood
4-Season Interest and Dramatic Winter Color
Yellow Twig Dogwood is a deciduous shrub with bright, ornamental twigs. Plant several along a property line in concert with Red Dogwood for a decorative contrast during the drab, winter months. You could also plant just one in view of a window where its winter color can brighten your cold season landscape.
Your Yellow Twig Dogwood is sure to be a delight for your yard with its four-season interest. Two-inch clusters of tiny, white flowers appear in spring with occasional, recurrent blooming that lasts into summer.
Four-inch, dark green leaves fill out the shrub until they transition to a deep red for autumn. As fall approaches, white-hued drupes form on your Yellow Twig Dogwood as well, a valued feature for both their decorative nature and use to your yard’s wildlife.
Of course the most striking feature of your Yellow Twig Dogwood is its twig color. Maintaining its green color through the summer months, it makes a dramatic shift to bright yellow after the leaves have fallen, displaying outstanding color against the browns and greys of winter.
Yellow Twig Dogwood will grow to about 6 feet in height with an equal spread. It doesn’t require any pruning, but is happy to be trimmed if you so desire. It’s tolerant of a variety of conditions and is even drought tolerant.
For a splash of much-needed color in winter you can’t go wrong with a Yellow Twig Dogwood. Four-season interest, and particular winter appeal is a rare thing. Couple the Yellow Twig with a Red Dogwood for a truly unique display in your winter landscape this year.
