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.

No matter where you grow it, your Red Twig Dogwood Shrub is ready to explode with rich color.

So far so good. Ordered because they do well in soggy areas.

Pleasantly surprised

My shrubs arrived very quickly after ordering them and all three looked great out of the boxes. One is still a little limp, but all are in the ground, watered, and fenced off from dogs and other critters. They are much taller than I had expected, so pruning will be essential if we want to see off our back porch. I'm planting Russian sage between the shrubs to hopefully work as deer repellent. I'm glad I purchased the repellent, just in case. Can't wait for the winter to see their beautiful red stems.

Beautiful Dogwood

The dogwood arrived in great condition and full of leaves. We got the bigger one and it did not disappoint. Just planted it this Spring but it looks great. The deer browsed it a bit before I got the deer repellent on it but it's still looking healthy with lots of leaves.

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.
