Cornus sericea 'Flaviramea'

Golden stemmed Dogwood. Three added to Golden Border, January 2019. From Gardening Express.

Position: full sun to part shade
Soil: any moderately fertile, reliably moist soil
Rate of growth: fast-growing
Flowering Period: May and June
Hardiness: fully hardy

Clusters of white flowers in May and June and oval, dark green leaves, which redden in autumn and fall to reveal bright, yellow-olive winter stems. The stems of this dogwood look stunning planted alongside salmon-pink and red-stemmed varieties. An excellent specimen plant for sunny, moist areas of the garden. It's particularly effective near water.
