This compact Dogwood explodes into color in the fall, turning shades of yellow and orange and holding its leaves longer than most other Dogwoods. After the leaves drop, the twigs are exposed, showing off an array of colors - yellow at the base, deepening to fiery orange and red at the tips. Does well with heavy pruning in the early spring.
