Dogwood and Baton Rouge Red Twig Dogwood are able to grow and thrive in damp soils that cause other shrubs to struggle. Bailey Red Twig Dogwood is a tough selection native to Minnesota, and Arctic Fire
Dogwood is a great fit in many areas of the landscape due to its smaller size.
For people who love plants with
white variegated edges on green leaves, the modest sized Ivory Halo Dogwood is an excellent choice. If you are looking for a smaller shrub with very distinctive foliage, Pucker Up Dogwood might be just the right plant!
While all these dogwood varieties tolerate wet soils very well, they are also excellent and vigorous shrubs when planted on better drained upland soils. Another versatile characteristic of dogwoods is their ability to grow well in both full sun and areas with partial shade. One variety named Garden Glow Dogwood adds even more versatility by doing its best in locations with only a few hours of sunlight during the long days of summer.
Another good reason to try these dogwoods is their excellent winter stem color. Most of the varieties we carry have beautiful burgundy red to bright orange-red stems once they have dropped their leaves in the fall. A mass of Red Twig Dogwood on a sunny winter day is a feast for the eyes as glowing red twigs contrast sharply with the white dominated landscape.
