Red Twig Dogwood

When you take a look out of your window what fills your view of your landscape? If all you see is a blanket of thick white snow it may be time to brighten your winter landscape. Sure a snow filled landscape is beautiful and bright in its own sense, but it lacks texture and color. If you would prefer to look out into a landscape full of texture and color that is sprinkled with snow with consider adding Red twig dogwoods to your landscape.

Red twig dogwood is a shrub known to add beautiful color to landscapes because of its deep red branches. In the spring the Red twig dogwood shrub will decorate your landscape with white blossoms and brown to green colored stems, and by the fall it will add a different texture with bright red berries to match its bright red stems. As native plant the shrub works well for massing in large areas and as a decorative border for landscapes.
