The Red Twig Dogwood is another wonderful shrub that offers a year-round focal point to your landscape. This shrub can be used in many ways but we recommend putting it somewhere that will highlight its winter beauty. After all of its leaves have fallen off the bright red stems add a warmth to the bleak winter months. It is a wonderful companion shrub for a garden with its green leaves and small white flowers that bloom in the spring and are replaced by small bluish berries in the summer. They do well as stand-alone plants when massed together and they can even work for you when massed on banks to prevent erosion.

It’s looking great! So pleased with it. I planted it right away and it’s perked right up and doing really well.
Appears to be healthy in its young state. A few small leaves are present.
