Enjoy the garden throughout the seasons with Cardinal Red Twig Dogwood. An easy-care, deciduous shrub, it offers clusters of fragrant, white flowers that butterflies love in late spring. Birds enjoy feasting on the fruits that follow. Its dark green leaves show hints of red and orange and turn purple in the fall, and its red twigs will delight garden visitors in the winter. This fast-growing shrub reaches 6-9 ft. tall with an upright, spreading habit. It tolerates wet soils, and deer tend to pass it by. Cardinal Red Twig looks impressive planted in groups, so it's ideal for massing in naturalized areas or planting for erosion control. It's also an attractive flowering shrub. Our Cardinal Red Twig Dogwood Hedge offers an affordable way to grow a hedge or plant en masse.
