Yellow Twig Dogwood
Purple Leaf Sand Cherry

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.

The Purple Leaf Sandcherry provides bright reddish-purple leaves that turn bronze-green in the fall. In the spring, tiny flowers with a pinkish white hue bloom. The flowers are small, but the impact comes from the shrub blossoming all at once. The Purple leaf sand cherry is susceptible to pests and diseases; a typical life span is approximately 10 - 15 years. Not suitable for a privacy hedge but good as an accent plant that attracts birds and bees.
