Especially in a small space garden, you need to get the most out of every plant choice. Look for versatile plants that bring interest in winter, spring, summer and fall.
Dynamic Yellow Twig Dogwood is a deciduous shrub with bright, ornamental twigs. They make simply outstanding individual accent shrubs, hedges, and as a backdrop for a Butterfly Garden.
Yellow Twig Dogwood features two-inch floral clusters, composed of tiny, white flowers. They appear mostly in spring, but you'll enjoy recurrent blooming on new wood into summer.
Beneficial pollinators adore these easy sources of nectar. The wide blooms make for an easy landing. Once there, butterflies have hundreds of nectar-rich flowers to sip from.
Yellow Twig Dogwood has a nice form. The look is lush and densely branched.
Four-inch, dark green leaves fill out the shrub through summer. It fills out all the way to the bottom; so no facer needed.
The foliage mellows to a mahogany red for fall. At the same time, showy white berries appear to feed songbirds.
Striking winter twig color is the real reason why people buy these plants from our expert growers.
Once the leaves drop for winter, the twigs make a dramatic shift from green to bright yellow. Enjoy that bold, ornamental color against the browns and greys of winter.
Use them just about anywhere in your landscape. Yellow Twig Dogwood puts on a dazzling display in all seasons.
It's tolerant of a variety of soil conditions—including occasionally wet soils. Once the well-behaved roots are established in your yard, it will tolerate periodic drought, as well.
Go ahead and take that vacation. Your Yellow Twig Dogwood will muddle along without you just fine, thanks very much.
Add Yellow Twig Dogwood for a splash of much-needed color in winter. Allow it to become a truly unique display in your winter landscape.

How to Use Yellow Twig Dogwood in the Landscape
Take the opportunity to relish these lemony-yellow shrubs once the snow starts coming, and the nights get longer.
Uplight them with a series of outdoor lights placed at their base. Shine the light upward into the branches for a Winter Wonderland effect.
Plant a semi-circle of these shrubs around your fire pit. Include a few Red Twig Dogwood shrubs into your design. The fiery combo of electric yellow and fire-red winter stems would make the perfect backdrop.
Can't have a real fire where you live? Why not grow a single Yellow Twig Dogwood to mimic the flames in a mock "fire pit"? Outline your new shrub with a circle of retaining wall blocks about five feet across, and include seating nearby.
Let these vivid shrubs bring your whimsical side out. Gardens should be filled with sly little moments to delight their visitors.
Use an informal grouping on the south or west of your entertainment area. You'll have shade in the afternoon, and a welcome privacy screen.
Stick with Yellow Twig, or try a collection of Dogwoods. Nature Hills has an extensive collection of these valuable shrubs.
They are easy-care, and grow quickly to perform all year-long. Dress them up, or keep them rustic.
They'll make a very effective, modern and attractive hedge. Plant the shrubs three feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
Try growing it out naturally as an untrimmed hedge. The elegant foliage, pretty spring blooms and ornamental fall berries are well worth it!
Leave enough space to accommodate its mature height and spread, and let it do its thing. You'll love how easily it is to maintain.
Prefer a tighter cut? No problem, Yellow Twig Dogwood takes pruning well.
Make it work hard for you!
Run a hedge along your driveway to block snow. Use on a slope to prevent erosion.
Add at the edge of a planned Rain Garden to absorb potentially polluted runoff from streets and gutters before it hits the storm drain.
Commercial property owners can drive interest with a highly effective mass planting. Add the shrubs in back of a long curved bed of several types of Ornamental Grasses; and the golden good looks will bring eyes on your business at wintertime.
It's a great choice anywhere you need a bit more pizzazz. Plant several on the sunny side of mature evergreen trees, and pump up the look of a windbreak.
Increase the height of your fence with a friendly "living fence". You can even add it to the corner of your house in your foundation planting.
The cut stems sell for lots of money. Cut several of the colorful stems for your seasonal planters. Enjoy decorations from fall through early spring.
Go ahead and let the sunny shade of Yellow Twig Dogwood inspire you during the long days of wintertime. You'll smile every time you see it.
#ProPlantTips for Care
You'll enjoy the best stem color in full sun. However, Yellow Twig Dogwood also performs in partial shade.
It will do very well in well-drained soil that sheds water quickly. But 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 drought. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system to further cut down on surface evaporation.
Prune one-third of the oldest, thickest stems at ground level in late winter. You'll have vigorous, healthy, young stems that knock your socks off with bright yellow color.
