Red twig dogwood provides a pop of color in winter, white flowers in spring and berries in summer. Here's how to grow red twig dogwood in your garden!
ADDS INTEREST ALL SEASONS
Few plants give you more four season interest than red twig dogwood! No matter what time of year it is, this shrub will look stunning in your garden.
Want a bright pop of color in winter? Plant a red twig dogwood! After the leaves fall, the eye-catching, upright red stems contrast beautifully with a snowy or rain-soaked landscape.
Want spring blooms? Plant a red twig dogwood! In late spring, it adorns the landscape with clusters of tiny white blossoms set against the green foliage and red stems.
WHEN TO PLANT
Late fall and early spring are the best times to plant this shrub, and plant nurseries sell red twig dogwood in these seasons.
WHERE TO PLANT
Red twig dogwood can grow in partial shade or full sun. However, the red branch color gets the brightest and most attractive when exposed to lots of sun.
Red twig dogwood does not need fertilizer beyond a small layer of compost around the plant in spring. Water new plants at least weekly for the first season, and keep the soil moist
