The Yellow Twig Dogwood is an attractive small shrub reaching perhaps 6 feet in height, which is grown mainly for its attractive and interesting bright-yellow stems during winter. After the leaves turn deep-red in fall, they drop to reveal brilliant twigs in a stunning shade of lemon-yellow. This shrub will grow in any kind of soil and it thrives especially well in damp and even wet soil – locations where other plants often fail. It is very winter-hardy, all the way down into zone 3. To develop the longest twigs with the best color, prune hard in early spring every second or third year.

  • Bright yellow winter twigs
  • Rich red leaves in fall
  • Hardy mid-sized shrub for cold areas
  • Grows well in wet soil, or regular soil
  • Easy to grow and trouble-free

Plant the Yellow Twig Dogwood in ordinary garden soil, or it grows well in wet soil. It makes an excellent plant for winter interest and it can be grown as a low casual hedge or a property boundary screen, as well as among other shrubs or featured by a pond or stream. Plant in groups to create a natural landscape effect, or use to make a low, informal hedge. This plant has few serious problems, it is resistant to deer, and it is easily grown in a wide range of conditions.
