Description The bright green leaves tinged with an irregular yellow margin make Hedgerow Gold Redosier Dogwood a joy to look upon in the woody plant garden. The deep burgundy red colored stems add winter interest.

This deciduous shrub grows to 6’ in height and 6’ in width. A mature plant will form a thicket of stems. A hedgerow could be formed by planting multiple plants 6’ apart in a row.

Domes of small white flowers form in April through May. Afterwards the flowers morph to white fruit which are attractive and provide birds with a winter staple.

After leaves drop in autumn, the red stems stand out against the stark winter landscape, offering bold color and sculptural form in the garden at an otherwise dreary time of year.

This dogwood cultivar does best with regular water, filtered light and protection from the hot afternoon sun. It can easily withstand boggy sites.

The entire plant can be pruned back to the ground line every 2-3 years in order to stimulate new growth.

None reported.
