Red Twig Dogwood Hedge
For Your Summer and Winter Scene
Red Twig Dogwood is the hedge you've been looking for if you're trying to design for all four seasons. This dogwood has a big show both in summer and in the hardest season to plan for, winter--transforming that dreary grey landscape into something festive and remarkable. The big, bright white flowers appear in late spring and are favored by butterflies. Then in summer, the they give way to ripening fruit that'll bring on the birds. After the autumn leaves fall and the rest of the garden goes dormant, this dogwood reveals the red branches it was named for. Brilliant, as if they were painted, these will add a shock of color amid grey skies and snowy flowerbeds. You won't be disappointed if you plant a hedgerow of Red Twig Dogwood trees. In addition to being beautiful, they're also fast-growing, dependable and won't take up too much of your precious time on maintenance. This tree is tolerant of poor soil, including occasional standing water or dry spells. Seldom severely damaged by deer.
