Neon burst dogwood
This is an incredibly hardy shrub with a zone 2 rating. It produces neon golden foliage during the summer, and during the fall- soft purples, reds, yellows, and orange colours. It even provides some winter interest with its sharp red-coloured twigs.
We love it for its tight, predictable shape when designing landscapes. It grows in a nice round shape with a height and spread of ~4-5 feet. Of course, this is under ideal conditions.
Pruning is required to maintain this shape, however, its simple and typically only needed 1-2 times a year. This dogwood prefers full sun, but will tolerate part sun as. Water needs are moderate adding to its hardy nature.
