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.

Perfect shrub for any spot. Review by Linda
We purchased three of these this spring for a shady area and will definitely purchase more as we develop our landscape. They are attractive, deer resistant, attract birds, and will screen our property beautifully.
Folliage color Review by Yard Guy
My red twigged dogwoods leaf out early in the spring and they seem to get my yard work in high gear.
Blown away Review by Doug in NC
Bought 2 red twig dogwoods to put in an area that has been too moist for most anything else. Wasn't sure about bare root shrubs but I was amazed. They were a LOT larger than advertised & with a ton of buds. It was a lot easier to plant & it took just fine. I love Nature Hills!
Simple! Review by devsmom
As a new homeowner, this was the 1st shrub I planted, and Im glad I did. It needs no attention from me, and I love the red twigs against the snow in winter. It grows somewhat slowly the 1st year, but really takes off the 2nd (like many trees/shrubs).
