Large creamy-white flowers bloom in spring, but the Red Twig Dogwood saves its best show for the fall and winter months in the form of gorgeous bright red stems. Not only do the stems provide visual interest outdoors, but they also make excellent cuttings for seasonal arrangements!
The deciduous Red Twig Dogwood does best in USDA Hardiness zones 2-9 and reaches a mature height of 9 feet with a 5 foot spread.
