Description

Red Twig Dogwood provides wildlife food and cover and is also used to stabilize stream banks

Red twig dogwood is a brilliant color accent for your landscape this time of year. Its beautiful red stems are most intense in full sun, but it can tolerate part shade, too. Its loose habit makes it ideal for the back of borders, privacy plantings, or a fast-growing hedge.

Red twig dogwood is commonly used in mass plantings, hedges and screens, and perennial border foundations. It provides wildlife food and cover and is also used to stabilize stream banks. Best known for its bright red twigs, this shrub can flourish in wet soil or even shallow water, reducing erosion problems.

Red twig dogwood will add a distinctive look to your landscape—plant as a hedge, screen, or in groups for best effect. The deep red twigs stand out, especially in snowy landscapes, and offer much-needed food for birds in winter. It is adaptable to almost any soil but does best in moist areas with the sun to partial shade.

Red Twig Dogwood are fantastic in mass plantings as borders, hedges, screens, or lined along driveways and patios

Plant Red Twisted Dogwood in the border, at an opening in the woods, or in your pond garden. It will be a bright sensation when covered with brilliant red stems in winter. All summer, the small oval leaves are lustrous green, making this a good choice for an informal hedge.

Showy, creamy white flat-topped flowers appear in flat corymbs from late spring to early summer, along with pointed ovate, glossy dark green leaves (2" long). In autumn, the foliage turns attractive yellow, pink, and orange shades. After its leaves fall during the winter months, the shrub's striking red twigs add ornamental interest to your yard.

Red twig dogwood is prized for its brilliant, neon red stems that are most vivid in winter. An excellent shrub for the wildlife garden, red twig dogwood is also a valuable food source for birds who enjoy its fruit and seeds.

Red twig dogwoods are fantastic in mass plantings as borders, hedges, screens, or lined along driveways and patios. They also make excellent cut flowers.

This shrub requires only minimal care and maintenance. In early spring, prune 1/3 of the oldest branches to the ground to encourage new growth and even more brilliant color. With such easy-care requirements, this eye-catching plant is a gardeners' favorite for use as a specimen plant, a hedge or screen, mass planting, and mixed beds.
