Dogwood Red Twig (3 Gallon Container)
"In the wild, it commonly grows in areas of damp soil, such as wetlands.
It is a medium to tall deciduous shrub, growing 1.5–4" m tall and 3–5 m
wide, spreading readily by underground stolons to form dense thickets.
The branches and twigs are dark red, although wild plants may lack this coloration in shaded areas. The leaves are opposite, 5–12 cm long and
2.5–6 cm broad, with an ovate to oblong shape and an entire margin;
they are dark green above and glaucous below; fall color is commonly
bright red to purple. The flowers are small (5–10 mm diameter), dull
white, in clusters 3–6 cm diameter. The fruit is a globose white berry 5–
9 mm diameter."
