The bright yellow stems on the younger growth of this multi-stemmed shrub provide striking winter color. White flower clusters adorn the green foliage in spring and are followed by white ornamental fruit. Bare stems are an excellent addition to seasonal flower arrangements. Use in shrub borders or mass plantings. Ideal for naturalizing. Deciduous.

Design Ideas: Bring interest to the winter garden with this Dogwood's yellow twigs that stand out against the dark landscape. Plant in a stand or use singly as contrast to neighboring plants. Keep the outstanding stem color by cutting down the stems in early spring to make room for new growth.

Prefers enriched, moist, well-drained soils but adaptable; tolerates dry conditions and wet soils once established. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Fertilize in spring. Best stem color on young wood; hard prune one-third of oldest stems annually in late winter. Root prune to control spread.

History

Osier describes how this dogwood produces the same whip-like branching as the willows, also known as osiers in the Old World.
