Dynamic Yellow Twig Dogwood (Cornus sericea ‘Flaviramea’) is a deciduous shrub with bright, ornamental twigs! Yellow Twig Dogwood features two-inch floral clusters, composed of tiny, white flowers. They appear mostly in spring, but you’ll enjoy recurrent blooming on new wood into summer. Beneficial pollinators adore these easy sources of nectar. The wide blooms make for an easy landing. Once there, butterflies have hundreds of nectar-rich flowers to sip from!
Yellow Twig Dogwood has a nice form. The look is lush and densely branched. Four-inch, dark green leaves fill out the shrub through summer. It fills out all the way to the bottom, so no facer plant is needed! The foliage mellows to a mahogany red for fall. At the same time, showy white berries appear to feed songbirds.
Once the leaves drop for winter, the twigs make a dramatic shift from green to bright yellow for winter interest. Enjoy that bold, ornamental color against the browns and greys of winter. Take the opportunity to relish these lemony-yellow shrubs once the snow starts coming, and the nights get longer. Striking winter twig color is the real reason why people buy these plants from our expert growers. They are easy-care and grow quickly to perform all year long!
Planting and Application:Uplight them with a series of outdoor lights placed at their base. Shine the light upward into the branches for a Winter Wonderland effect. Plant a semi-circle of these shrubs around your fire pit. Include a few Red Twig Dogwood shrubs in your design. The fiery combo of electric yellow and fire-red winter stems would make the perfect backdrop.
Can’t have a real fire where you live? Why not grow a single Yellow Twig Dogwood to mimic the flames in a mock “fire pit”? Outline your new shrub with a circle of retaining wall blocks about five feet across, and include seating nearby.
Use an informal grouping on the south or west of your entertainment area. You’ll have shade in the afternoon, and a welcome privacy screen. They’ll make a very effective, modern and attractive hedge. Plant the shrubs three feet apart on center. You’ll measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
Try growing it out naturally as an untrimmed hedge. The elegant foliage, pretty spring blooms, and ornamental fall berries are well worth it! Stick with Yellow Twig, or try a collection of Dogwoods. Nature Hills has an extensive collection of these valuable shrubs. Dress them up, or keep them rustic.
It’s a great choice anywhere you need a bit more pizzazz. Plant several on the sunny side of mature evergreen trees, and pump up the look of a windbreak. Run a privacy hedge along your driveway to block snow. Use on a slope to prevent erosion. Leave enough space to accommodate its mature height and spread, and let it do its thing. You’ll love how easy it is to maintain. Prefer a tighter cut? No problem, Yellow Twig Dogwood takes pruning well. Make it work hard for you!
Add at the edge of a planned Rain Garden to absorb potentially polluted runoff from streets and gutters before it hits the storm drain. Increase the height of your fence with a friendly “living fence”. You can even add it to the corner of your house in your foundation planting.
Commercial property owners can drive interest with highly effective mass planting. Add the shrubs in the back of a long curved bed of several types of Ornamental Grasses, and the golden good looks will bring eyes to your business in wintertime.
Yellow Twig Dogwood puts on a dazzling display in all seasons! Go ahead and let the sunny shade of Yellow Twig Dogwood inspire you during the long days of wintertime.

#ProPlantTips for Care:You’ll enjoy the best stem color in full sun. However, Yellow Twig Dogwood shrubs also perform in partial shade. It will do very well in well-drained soil that sheds water quickly. But once they are established in your yard, they will be very adaptable to varying soil conditions. This includes soils that periodically stay wet and then dry out during summer. Give regular water for best results, especially for young plants and during extended droughts. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system to further cut down on surface evaporation, and keep the foliage clean from mud splashing during rain.
Prune it hard in late winter to early spring to keep your plants healthy, vigorous, and the most colorful. Please note that the new growth is the most brilliantly colored. This simple yearly pruning to thin out some branches are perfect for winter décor. Each fall, perform a renewal pruning, by cutting out a few of the oldest, thickest stems to the ground. Your plant should look healthy and last for decades in your landscape. Once the well-behaved roots are established in your yard, it will tolerate periodic drought, as well. Go ahead and take that vacation. Your Yellow Twig Dogwood will muddle along without you just fine, thanks very much!
