Cornus sericea 'Flaviramea' the Golden Twig Dogwood


Grown for its ornamental value in the autumn and winter when the young stems take on a golden colour. It looks particularly attractive when planted with the Red Stemmed Dogwood. 


A deciduous, rapid growing, multi-stemmed small flowering shrub. Clusters of creamy-white flowers appear in late spring. After the flowers are spent, bluish-tinged white berries appear.


The leaves are dark green and ovate with greenish-yellow stems during the spring and summer. The foliage turns reddish orange in Autumn before the shrub looses its leaves and the stems turn a golden colour, adding interest to the winter garden. 


Excellent as border plant, low hedge or garden specimen. Also excellent for erosion control as they have a good root system.


1 year old plants are approximately 10 - 15 cm 

2 year old plants are approximately 15 - 30 cm 


Plant Size: 1.5 m high x 1.5 m wide 


Position and Care:

The Golden Twig Dogwood will perform best when it is planted in full sun, in rich, well-draining soil in a cool temperate climate. However, it will tolerate very average soils and part shade.


Keep well watered when young, until the shrub is well established. Once established this shrub is reasonably drought hardy. Frost tolerant.


Prune lightly after flowering to maintain a compact shape.


Apply a slow-release fertiliser in early Spring.
