The Red Twig Dogwood provides winter interest with stems that are red in winter. There is something to see all year long with this perennial. Profuse tiny flowers show up in springtime. The green leaves make a great backdrop for other flowering plants during the summer and then will change to a crimson in the fall. The plant is a deciduous shrub that will lose all its leaves during the winter, which shows off the red stems. The Red Twig Dogwood populates by sending out sucker plants which can be cut from the parent plant and moved to a new location. Dogwoods require moist well drained soils. The Red Twig Dogwood can reach 10-15 feet in height. It's cold hardy to zone 3. It's also known as the Redosier Dogwood.
