Variegated cultivar of the yellow dogwood. Large shrub that grows into a multi-stemmed, small tree with a dense, almost round crown. This is a slow grower but it will become as wide as it is high. The margins of the green leaf are irregularly cream-white tinted. In autumn the entire leaf turns yellow to orange red. It flowers strikingly in winter, well before the leaves appear, and is completely covered in yellow flowers. In the early autumn they are followed by oval, glossy red berry-like stone-fruits that contrast beautifully with the variegated leaf. They hang down from short stalks and are edible, but taste slightly acid. They can be used to make marmelade, juice and wine!
