Golden Shadows pagoda dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) is the perfect small tree to accentuate your landscape or garden. Called "pagoda dogwood" because of its elegant, strongly horizontal branching, it offers not only a striking shape but also striking color. Each variegated leaf is a blend of greens and yellows that give it a glowing, illuminated look. In spring, lacy clusters of white flowers celebrate the season. 

Golden Shadows dogwood does best in light shade, particularly in warmer climates. We offer this variety because there are few prettier small trees, and because the foliage of this native plant hosts the larvae of the spring and summer azure butterflies; flowers also welcome the American snout butterfly. What a great plant!
