Just Some additional information on this tree. As was pointed out in this thread, Golden Shadows is a trademark name. I believe the cultivar name is Cornus alternifolia 'Wstackman', PP11287 by Walter Stackman March 14, 2000. According to the patent information, this was discovered in West Chicago as a naturally occurring branch sport of the species. The two main distinguishing characteristics described are the unique and more stable variegation, and the vigorous habit - similar to the species (Claim is 18 feet in 10 years). This tree is supposedly listed by both cultivar and trademark names in the Broken Arrow Nursery Catalog. Could someone tell me the best and most complete method for listing a plant when both cultivar and trade names exist?
