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 shrub features beautiful leaves with white threads, which creates 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 arrives later are 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.
