IN THE GARDEN: Grow Cornus mas for its early yellow flowers, which look like sweet little pom-pom puffballs-its a great alternative to forsythia.

His peeling bark looks great in tree or shrub habit.

Tolerates partial shade and moderate soils.

COMBINE WITH: daffodils and other spring flowering beauties such as hellebores.

IN THE VESSEL: Display bunches of long branches or feature a single stem in a simple bud vase. The beauty of this flowering branch is in the multitude of blossoms and the golden haze of color it brings to the room. This is an easy branch to force, blooms last long indoors roughly 12 days.

COMBINE WITH: simple green textures that can bring interest to the base of your arrangement like bergenia. Weave smaller pieces into spring wreaths or table adornments.  -Roanne

    Oh wow, I just saw these for the first time at the Seattle Flower & Garden show over the weekend and freaked out. They’re absolutely incredible! I live in an apartment so unfortunately I can’t have one, but oh god. If I ever have a house that is all I am planting.
