Shade Loving, Fast Growing with Year Round Appeal Red Twigged Dogwood has amazing winter appeal. It is perfect for a shady spot, near a tree line or on the north side of a house. It will also do equally well in full sun as a hedge or in a group. Like licks of fire rising up against the white, winter snows, your Red Twigged Dogwood will be an eye-catching stand-out amid your dreary winter landscape. The red bark on the Red Twigged Dogwood makes the winter a lot less dreary. Even though its main attraction is its winter appeal, this lively Dogwood has a lot to offer year-round. Milky white flowers appear in spring and soothing green foliage fills out your plant in spring and summer. Cabernet-wine colored leaves will transform your Dogwood in the fall until its signature deep red bark appears in winter. As an added bonus, in late summer drupes appear which are low in sugar and attractive to birds. In fact, this shrub is the favored nesting place of American goldfinches. Your Red Twigged Dogwood grows fast, so it won’t be long until it reaches its mature height of 10 feet. In early spring, cut the shrub back to four to six inches from the ground to ensure a perennial show of red stems over the coming winters. Other than that, your Dogwood doesn’t require much care and is a generally hardy plant. * Brilliant Red Twigs* White Flowers in Spring* Attracts Birds and Wildlife* Fast Growing .
Twigs of Fire in Winter The Arctic Fire Dogwood is a dwarf shrub with outstanding winter appeal. Plant one by a front entrance to draw the eye or several as a magnificent shrub border. Your yard in winter will never be the same once you plant an Arctic Fire. Lovely four foot stems of red fire will seem to capture the winter sunlight amid the browns and grays of your cold landscape.
