When you add a yellow twig dogwood to your landscape you get a plant with multi-season appeal. Most landscape designers use this shrub for its golden branches that stand out beautifully against a winter/early spring landscape and become simply eye-popping when it snows. Paired along with red twig dogwoods and evergreens this shrub can provide a cascade of color to a winter landscape. Moving into late spring, a yellow twig dogwood unfurls a bouquet of small white flowers and crisp green young leaves. By the summer, the foliage has settled into a dark green with white berries providing an accent. Finally, as fall settles in, the leaves turn to a pale yellow and the berries ripen to a blue color and attract a bevy of birds.
