Naturally strong horizontal habit needs little, if any pruning to attain a pleasing shape. Prune selectively as needed in early spring (though note this will remove any flowers on the pruned growth).
Golden Shadows® Pagoda Dogwood
Elegant structure and color. Golden Shadows® is a beautiful pagoda dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) noted for its distinctive color and elegant, horizontal habit. Its large heart-shaped leaves are bright yellow, dotted with an irregular green thumbprint, and the new growth flushes reddish orange in cool conditions. Attractive lacy white flowers in spring add to its charm. Happiest in filtered shade – a boon for such sites!
