Species: Bloodtwig Dogwood

Scientific Name: Cornus Sanguinea

Classification: Deciduous Shrubs



Description: The Bloodtwig Dogwood, also commonly known as the Winter Flame Dogwood, is a medium sized deciduous shrub, which can reach a mature height of 7-15 feet. The species is native to Europe but is known to thrive well in the more temperate areas of North America. The species gets its name from the color of the branches, which are a brilliant red. In the spring months, the broad and elliptical leaves form, which are medium green in color. In early summer, yellowish-white flowers appear, which yield dark purple berries in the late summer months.

Site Conditions: The Bloodtwig Dogwood is adaptable to different soil types, but prefers moist soil and is adaptable to wetter soil, providing that it is well drained. The species is not drought tolerant, so it requires regular watering in the summer months. It is also not known for flood tolerance, so do not plant in areas prone to seasonal flooding. It prefers full sun exposure, but is adaptable to partial shade conditions.
