This new Tatarian dogwood from Bylands Nursery in British Columbia has attractive chartreuse foliage and is a compact selection growing 4-5’ tall.

Fall foliage becomes a rainbow of purple, red, yellow and orange. In winter the stems turn glossy scarlet red. Unlike most C. alba, Neon Burst™ works well as a specimen plant or in large groupings.
