'Autumn Gold' Flowering Dogwood produces the classic white bracts in mid to late spring. The green summer foliage is followed by vivid yellow fall color, making Cornus florida 'Autumn Gold' a real color break for this great native species. The fall foliage is followed by a showy winter twig display in shades of yellow to orange. For a really spectacular example of this unusual Cornus, visit the wonderful specimen at the Mt. Cuba Center in Hockessin, Delaware. 'Autumn Gold' was found as a chance seedling by the legendary Don Shadow of Tennessee.
