The brilliant yellow stems of Bud's Yellow Dogwood (Cornus alba 'Bud's Yellow') will add a striking color to the winter landscape! It is an upright to rounded shrub that displays small white flowers. It blooms in the spring and has attractive medium-green foliage during the summer. The wide blooms make for an easy landing. Once there, butterflies and bees have hundreds of nectar-rich flowers to sip from!
Yellow Twig Dogwoods have a nice form and can create naturalized thickets The look is lush and densely branched and fully packed with dark green leaves that fill out the shrub through summer. It fills out all the way to the bottom, so no facer plant is needed! The foliage mellows to a mellow yellow for fall. At the same time, showy white berries appear to feed songbirds.
Once the leaves drop for winter, the twigs make a dramatic shift from green to bright yellow for winter interest. Enjoy that bold, ornamental color against the browns and greys of winter. Take the opportunity to relish these lemony-yellow shrubs once the snow starts coming, and the nights get longer. They are cold-hardy, easy-care, and grow quickly to perform all year long throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 8!
Add Bud's Yellow at the edge of a planned Rain Garden to filter and absorb potentially polluted runoff from streets and gutters before it hits the storm drain. You can even add it to the corner of your house in your foundation planting. Use an informal grouping on the south or west of your entertainment area. You'll have shade in the afternoon, and enjoy a welcome privacy screen.
Increase the height of your fence with a friendly "living fence". Plant the shrubs three feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next. Plant several on the sunny side of mature evergreen trees, and pump up the look of a windbreak.
Plant Bud's Yellow as property line screens, accents, or shrub borders that light up the landscape all winter long. Stick with Yellow Twig, or try a collection of Dogwoods. Nature Hills has an extensive collection of these valuable shrubs! It's a great choice anywhere you need a bit more pizzazz! For an interesting bicolor winter stem display, combine with Redtwig cultivars. The fiery combo of electric yellow and fire-red winter stems would make the perfect backdrop.
Run a privacy hedge along your driveway to block snow. Use on a slope to prevent erosion. Leave enough space to accommodate its mature height and spread, and let it do its thing. You'll love how easy it is to maintain. Try growing it out naturally as an untrimmed hedge. The elegant foliage, pretty spring blooms, and ornamental fall berries are well worth it!
Bud's Yellow Dogwood is best grown in organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun. This shrub prefers consistently moist, well-drained soils. Once they are established in your yard, they will be very adaptable to varying soil conditions. This includes soils that periodically stay wet and then dry out during summer. Give regular water for best results, especially for young plants and during extended droughts. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system to further cut down on surface evaporation, and keep the foliage clean from mud splashing during rain.
Prune Dogwood hard in late winter to early spring to keep your plants healthy, vigorous, and the most colorful. Please note that the new growth is the most brilliantly colored. This simple yearly pruning to thin out some branches are perfect for winter décor. Each fall, perform a renewal pruning, by cutting out a few of the oldest, thickest stems to the ground. Your plant should look healthy and last for decades in your landscape. Trim the roots and promptly remove root suckers if the colonial spread is not wanted. It is a rapid-growing, multi-stemmed, suckering, deciduous shrub that grows to a maximum size of 8 feet tall on erect, usually unbranched stems.
