Устойчивость к ветру:
Yellow-leaved cultivar of the yellow dogwood. Grows into a multipe-stemmed, small tree with a dense, almost round crown. Slow grower. Becomes as wide as it is high. The leaf is golden yellow and also in summer it clearly has a yellow colour. In autumn it is yellow to orange red. It flowers strikingly in winter, well before the leaves appear. The plant is covered completely then by yellow flowers which appear in small, domed umbels. In the early autumn they are followed by oval, glossy red berry-like stone-fruits that are circa 2 cm across. They hang down from short stalks and are edible, but taste slightly acid. Useful for marmelade, juice and wine-making. This cultivar usually bears many fruits, which contrast magnificently with the yellow leaf. Root growth is densely branched and shallow. Prefers calcareous soils.
