Red Twig Dogwood, also known as Red Osier Dogwood, is a beautiful shrub in all seasons. Numerous white flower clusters appear in late spring, giving way to lovely white berries in late summer. The fruits are attractive, ornamental, and popular with birds, as well. Red leaves provide autumn color, and the show continues through winter when the dramatic red stems are a striking point of interest. Spreading by suckers to form thickets, Cornus sericea is an excellent shrub for privacy screening, and very moisture tolerant.
