Red Twigged Dogwood

There are many forms of Red Twigged Dogwood (Cornus stolonifera, C.s.'Kelseyi', C.s.'Isanti')and they all contribute striking color accents to the Winter garden. Pick the appropriate size for your garden space and use either as a single specimen (seen here surrounded by Winter-blooming Hellebores and Winter Hazel), or as a broad swath of massed display. They are especially dazzling when planted in areas where snow stays on the ground. In Oregon, where my garden tends to be predominantly green during the Winter, the red twigs always get me into the holiday mood! I also use the cut twigs for basket-making, combined with grape vine branches. It's natural habitat is along stream banks in moist areas.
