Red Twig Dogwood - Redosier Dogwood Shrub
This red twig dogwood adds fantastic colour to the winter garden. They
show their best color in a sunny spot. They are sometimes also called
barked or redosier dogwood.(Cornus alba Sibirica or Cornus
They can be grown in wet soils but they also tolerate drier soils and are
very easy to grow. Cut about two thirds of the shrub back in the spring to keep the color at it's best.
