Product Description

Set Your Winter Landscape Ablaze in Fire-Red Color

Why Red Twig Dogwood Shrub?

It's a shrub that sparks conversation...with fantastic winter color, weather adaptability, and drought tolerance, the Red Twig Dogwood is truly one-of-a-kind.

In spring, you get attractive white flowers. Summer brings a well-shaped shrub with beautiful green leaves. And finally, fall starts warming up with red fall foliage. Come winter, the leaves drop, exposing the Red Twig's amazing bright red bark, living up to its name.

Use the Red Twig Dogwood as a privacy screen or even as a foundation hedge. It makes an attractive large shrub all by itself but is definitely most dramatic when several are planted together. Thriving in full sun or shade (but getting the most vibrant color with more sun), the Red Twig is a hardy, thriving selection that's second to none.

It's a hardy, drought-tolerant shrub that also does well in soggy areas. It's not fussy about soil and withstands the coldest conditions, anywhere in the country. You can even bring the flaming red stems inside for floral arrangements or as decoration at those festive holiday dinners...or plant one outside a window to enjoy its carefree, spectacular form year-round.

BEAUTIFUL RED TWIG SHRUB

Beautiful shrub, I wish I had ordered a couple more. It is already leafing out and looks fine. It has quite a few stems too.

Red Twig Dogwood

My wife was impressed with how fresh and healthy the trees were on arrival. Both plants were healthy and had a vibrant color. They looked so much healthier than the one we bought from a local nursery.


Planting & Care

1. Planting: In terms of sunlight requirements, Red Twigs will tolerate partial shade, but their signature red bark will be brightest if they are planted in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil.

Dig your planting hole twice the width of the root ball and just as deeply enough so that it's level with the surrounding area. Remove the plant from the container by gently tapping on the ground and easing the plant out of the container.

Place the shrub in the planting hole and backfill with your blend of native and gardening soil and gently tap down to secure the plant. Water the planting site to settle the soil then mulch to retain soil moisture.

2. Watering: Create a mulch barrier around the tree's trunk at planting. Keep the mulch five or six inches away from the trunk itself to help the tree retain water. Water the Red Twig thoroughly once or twice weekly - if you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water.
