Red Twig Dogwood

· If you’ve walked near a swampy bog, you’re familiar with this native shrub

· Red Twig Dogwood prefers sun to partial shade for optimum color; moist woodland conditions. If not pruned, grows to 6’ H x 6’W and will spread by suckers – remove suckers to control spread

· This shrub is very important habitat and food source for a variety of birds and animals with small white flowers in late spring, berries in fall and winter structure all winter

· Yearly early spring pruning is recommended as new growth produces the brightest red for winter interest
