Yellow Twig Dogwood
Dwarf Arctic Willow

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.

Dwarf Arctic Willow is a beautiful ornamental shrub that attracts butterflies. It grows into a low dense, rounded shrub with slender purple stems. The Dwarf Arctic Willow has bluish-green foliage throughout the season and stunning when planted as an artistic hedge. Cold hardy and juglone tolerant, this shrub will make a nice addition to your urban garden.
