The Red Twig Dogwood is a medium-sized shrub outstanding for its brilliant red stems that bring rich color to the garden in winter. It is especially useful in colder areas, since it is hardy to zone 3, as well as for growing in wet locations, where it will grow very well. This deciduous shrub has rich dark-red leaves in fall and attractive green leaves all summer. Anywhere the brightness of its winter twigs can be appreciated is a great location for this hardy, easily-grown plant that will fit into any garden right across the country.

• Great for winter color with brilliant red twigs
• Hardy to minus 40 degrees
• Great for wet areas of regular soil too
• Low-maintenance low screen or hedge
• Essential foundation plant for every garden

This is an excellent choice for foundation plantings, informal low hedges, natural and wild gardens, water gardens and ponds. It grows quickly and it can be pruned or left to grow naturally, depending on the appearance needed.
