Excellent on Long Island
I planted 7 of these in spring 2012 on a steep north-facing slope about 1 mile inland from Long Island's north shore. First of all, they all survived Hurricane Sandy! Second, this is a challenging environment with the north-facing slope giving them a very oblique sun exposure. But they held their own thru the first two winters, and this year they have really taken off with excellent yellow winter color, LOTS of good growth this spring, and beautiful white blooms right now. The ones in partial shade are lagging a bit behind the ones with fuller sun, so more sun is definitely better. Very happy with these guys!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Yellow Twig Dogwood

Yellow Twig Dogwood Planting Diretions

Very easy to grow! Likes moist conditions in full sun, but it is quite adaptable and will tolerate dry conditions in sun or shade. Best color, however, is achieved in full sun.

Pruning:  Stem color is brightest on young growth, so most people prune their Yellow Twigs regularly to renew the bush and keep the color bright. First, however, allow a couple of years for the plants to establish themselves. Then, there are 2 recommended methods of pruning:
1) You may remove 25% to 35% of the older stems (which are grey-brownish and rougher) each year.
2) Alternatively, you can prune ALL the stems down to 6 to 8 inches from the base of the plant, but only do this every 2 to 3 years. This method also keeps the plant slightly smaller.

How tall will Red and Yellow Twig Dogwoods grow when planted directly into the garden? I'm looking for a privacy screen. Thanks
Ashley J on Jul 12, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Ashley, I planted both the Yellow and Red last year and they are about 3.5 feet tall now - about half as high as their anticipated matured height. Mature height is between 6-8 feet tall.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
