Brilliant Red Winter Color

Redosier Dogwood is a deciduous shrub with brilliant red winter color.  It is unparalleled in its ability to brighten up the winter landscape.  Plant one anywhere you’d like a splash of vibrant color through the dull winter months.

Your Redosier Dogwood is a plant that defies the usual progression of color in an ornamental plant.  When most of your lovely summer plants are preparing for a winter rest, the excitement is just beginning for your Redosier Dogwood. 

A bright green presence in your yard for the summer months, this lively plant drops its leaves in fall to reveal purple/red stems. Those bright stems are sure to provide an exquisite stand-out in your barren, winter landscape. 

While summer isn’t when the Dogwood shines, your Redosier Dogwood will still be an esteemed presence in your yard through the warm months. 

The 5-10 cm leaves are opposite and oval, with white threads creating a lovely effect as they run through the veins. 

The 4-petalled tiny flowers are white to greenish, appearing in numerous dense, flat-topped clusters.

The white fruit that arrive later are 7-9 mm long, berry-like drupes which are attractive to birds and other wildlife.

The Redosier Dogwood is a free-spreading shrub with many stems.  It will reach 8-12 feet in height with an equal spread but can be pruned to any size.

It is adaptable to both wet and dry sites as well as a variety of soil types. Your Redosier is even shade tolerant.

An admirable deciduous shrub with unique ornamental qualities, your Redosier Dogwood won’t fail to please you year after year.
