Yellow Dogwood
(Cornus flaviramea)

Yellow Dogwood plants are quick growing with bright yellow-green coloured stems in winter. 

All Dogwood varieties have similar features, which includes creamy-white flowers in the Spring, following with blue or white berries (which Thrushes and Robins love), that sit on lush dark-green, oval leaves that redden in Autumn and fall (as the plant is deciduous) to uncover the stunning-coloured stems underneath.

You can create a lovely mixed hedge with the Yellow Dogwood, or you can let it express its own wonderful features as a standalone hedge.

The Cornus flaviramea is a tough plant that does well in both sun and partial shade and will always do best in moist sites.

  • Growth height: Average (20-40cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 2.5m+ Tall
  • Soil Type: Normal
  • Exposure: Inland
  • Aspect: Semi-shade, Sun
  • Evergreen foliage? No

Do not prune your Yellow Dogwood in first year of growth; after that, ensure you cut them down to a woody base (within 4 inches of the ground) before they bud. This must be done every year, and make sure you feed and water the plant well after doing so- this will reward you with bright and lovely new shoots. You can also regenerate old plants through cutting away the old wood from the centre.

When should I plant Common Dogwood hedging?

Yellow Dogwood can be planted at any time of year, providing the soil is not frozen. Bare root plants, however, are only available and ready to plant from November-March, during the dormant period.

How far apart should I plant Yellow Dogwood plants?

Although some plant Dogwood singly. we recommend planting around 3 or so to create a good, bushy clump. If you're looking for a hedge, we recommend around 5 per metre in a double staggered row, or 3 in a straight line, around 30cm apart between each plant.

How to plant Yellow Dogwood:

As Dogwood prefers a fertile and rich soil, it is best to amend the planting soil with 50% compost, and 50% soil.

Ensure the hole/trench is around twice the width of the plant's root mass, but the same depth. This will ensure the roots have plenty of room to spread and the soil is loose enough. Place the plants in once you have done so, ensuring their crown is level with the ground. Backfill with the soil mix, and pat down as you go along to secure the plant.

Water very well and continue to do so for the first year or so after planting - this is a crucial step for the plant's health and best establishment. We do also recommend adding a little mulch to retain moisture, but you must ensure it is at least 15cm away from the main stem.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
