Description / Cornus 'Cardinal'

Noted for its showstopping winter stems, Cornus sericea 'Cardinal' also known as a Redtwig Dogwood, is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub of great ornamental interest in the winter landscape. It bears handsome dark green leaves in the spring and summer which contrast beautifully with the cardinal red stems. Small clusters of creamy white flowers appear in the late spring to attract butterflies. They give way to clusters of white berries that will bring your birds to feast. In the fall, the foliage turns stunning shades of burgundy red before falling to reveal the vibrant, glistening ,red stems which radiate color all winter long. It is generally pest and disease free. It is easy to grow, easy to care for, and deer resistant. It looks spectacular when planted in mass to emphasize and accentuate the cold season stem color. It's a great choice for shrub borders, along ponds and streams, or planted where it can spread and form thickets. Cornus 'Cardinal' Dogwood is an invaluable addition to your winter landscape.
