Traditional deciduous shrub makes a colorful splash in winter!
Deep green leaves accented by white, star shaped flowers and berries give drop in fall… bright yellow stems are striking in the winter months against the snow.
Makes for a unique hedge or privacy screen… pair with Red Twig Dogwood for an eye catching contrast!
In addition to tolerating even the coldest of conditions, the Yellow Twig Dogwood is adaptable to various types or soil and is tolerant of drought.

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.
