Product Description
The best shrubs are easy to grow and solve garden challenges, and the Yellow Twig Dogwood does this and more. Growing just 5-6 ft. tall with a similar spread, this deciduous shrub produces white flower clusters in the late spring. The flowers give way to drupes that birds like to eat. This shrub's green foliage turns red and orange shades in the fall--and in the winter, its yellow stems provide color to the garden or landscape. Plant in groups for a show of color in naturalized areas or in a row to create a hedge along a border. Because it tolerates swampy or boggy conditions, Yellow Twig Dogwood can also be planted near streams or ponds for erosion control. Deer tend to avoid. For best results, plant in full sun to partial shade. Zones 3-8.
