Few shrubs can provide the dramatic year-round impact of the Yellow Twig Dogwood.

From the stunning yellow bark of winter that lend this showy shrub its name to the unique white berries of summer you will love watching this plant transform your landscape all year. In spring sprigs of delicate white flowers emerge, sitting atop lovely green leaves. These green leaves transition to yellow in autumn before dropping to reveal that prized yellow bark.

Wildlife, birds, and butterflies love the Yellow Twig Dogwood. Butterflies flock to this plant in spring when the blooms arrive. Birds and other wildlife enjoy the berries.

This shrub is extremely easy to care for, only demanding water. Yellow Twigs prefer full sun, but perform well with some shade. They are adaptable to a variety of soil including clay and even wet soil. Keep the soil moist and fertilize with a balanced, slow release fertilizer once a year in spring for best results. Yellow Twig Dogwoods are deer tolerant.

Add some unique and stunning color to your boring, winter landscape with the Yellow Twig Dogwood!

Landscape ideas
The Yellow Twig Dogwood compliments just about any plant or tree.  Some of our favorites are grey owl junipers, firewitch dianthus, and emerald green arborvitae.  Yellow Twigs look great in a bed or garden as a specimen plant or planted in mass for a spectacular display.  Try these as an extremely unique border or hedge.  These are great for erosion control and tolerate slope planting well.
