River Alder is a large shrub or small tree with a multi-stemmed, spreading habit. It is an excellent tree to plant if you want to stabilize the soil near rivers and creeks.

Unlike the other alder varieties, River Alder is attractive enough to be included in riverside plantings by municipal and provincial park organizations.

Budd's Yellow Dogwood is a select cultivar of Yellow Twig Dogwood that reaches 5 ft tall and wide. It is adaptable and disease resistant which allows it to survive in difficult areas. The striking yellow twigs will add winter interest to your landscape and contrast nicely with Red Osier Dogwood. You can also try contrasting Budd's Yellow Dogwood with more textured trees such as evergreens.
