Yellow Twig Dogwood vs Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Cornus sericea Flaviramea

Rubus Souris

Yellow Twig Dogwood
Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

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.

Souris is an improved version of Boyne, the classic prairie raspberry. It is planted all across Canada and is extremely robust. Where other raspberry cultivars rely on unique selling points and specializations, Souris is just generally a great raspberry.


Souris is cold hardy and resistant to disease and spider mites. Its berries are delicious and colourful, great for U-pick operations, fresh eating, or using in products such as jams and pies.


Souris canes are 3-5 feet tall, sturdy, and floricane. This means that raspberries will not grow on canes the year they first grow. The mature canes they do grow on, however, produce more berries than primocane varieties.
