Green Alder is a cold hardy, native shrub. It is often planted on infertile sites so it can fix nitrogen from the air and improve the soil quality.

Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.

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.
