March 13th, I took a cutting from Ellen of her yellow dogwood bush. It was one long stem that I cut into six 6-8″ pieces. I put the pieces in root starter, then into water.
Almost immediately, the little sticks bloomed with leaves and buds. Spectacular! But, still no root.
Today, 24 days later, the first pieces finally have roots.
I’m anxious to plant these amazing bushes and see if they will grow in my yard!
I planted the start with roots on April 18. The others are still waiting for roots.
I don’t think I have seen a yellow dogwood, I thought they came in pink and white. I am new to gardening here so this is all very interesting to me. :} I am happy for you Karen and your yellow dogwood. :}
Thank you Maria! So glad you found us.
The yellow twig dogwood is actually a bush, famous for it’s amazing bright bark.
It’s like the photo at the bottom of the post. I, love dogwoods and have many in my yard, pink and white!
Good morning Karen and thank you for the info on the yellow dogwood, I love to learn new things when it comes to to gardening.
Have a great weekend!
I love variegated yellow twig dogwood, but I can’t find anyone that has them right now. If anyone knows of someone that sells them or has some to sell I would love to get some. At this point I’m even willing to take un-rooted cuttings.

I hope you find some!
Please let us know. Happy Gardening!
