Pucker Up Red Twig Dogwood Shrubs for Sale Online
Pucker Up Red Twig Dogwood has red stems in winter, clean, disease-resistant foliage, compact habits.
This unique version of our native red-twig dogwood offers a little twist: heavily textured foliage that has a "quilted" effect. Pucker Up Red Twig Dogwood makes an eye-catching addition to your landscape and thrives even in wet or partially shaded areas. Though it does flower and displays some red coloration on its young stems, foliage is this variety's defining characteristic.
In the winter landscape, Pucker Up Red Twig Dogwood is a standout, especially when grown against a light-colored background or when displayed in a snowy landscape. It grows to around 3 to 4 feet tall and is equally as wide. It flourishes in dry soils once established but can also tolerate soil that tends to be slower draining which makes it perfect for that low area of your garden. In summer, it has the appearance of just another green shrub after its white blooms disappear in May. The flowers give way to beautiful porcelain blue berries that are adored by birds. When the days begin to shorten and the temperatures begin to fall, beautiful tones of red and purple are displayed before the leaves drop. Pucker Up Red Twig Dogwood is hardy from Zones 3-7 which makes it a highly sought-after native plant for Mid-Atlantic gardening enthusiasts.
