Yellow Twig Dogwood vs Canadian Buffalo Berry

Cornus sericea Flaviramea

Shepherdia canadensis

Yellow Twig Dogwood
Canadian Buffalo Berry

Yellow Twig Dogwood is a small deciduous shrub with attractive, bright yellow bark.

It features delicate white, star-shaped flowers and white fruit. It is often used as a screen, and its wide-spreading roots help stabilize areas experiencing soil erosion.

Yellow Twig Dogwood complements Red Osier Dogwood, and it is a great filler to add winter color to shrub and flower gardens.

Canadian Buffalo Berry is a native deciduous shrub found throughout North America.

This hardy, medium-sized shrub will tolerate poor soil conditions and produces attractive, edible - though very bitter - red fruit.

Interest in this plant as a health food has spiked recently due to the saponins found in the berries, which some claim reduce cholesterol. The British Columbian First Nations also traditionally used it to make "Indian Ice Cream", a whipped berry dessert.
