Red Twig Dogwood is known for its striking red stems, which are most prominent in the winter when the leaves have fallen off. It's a deciduous shrub that can grow up to 9 feet tall and wide. In the spring, it produces clusters of small white flowers, followed by small white berries in the summer.

This shrub is quite versatile and can thrive in a variety of soil conditions, including wet or poorly drained areas. It prefers full sun to partial shade and benefits from regular pruning to maintain its shape and encourage new growth.

Red Twig Dogwood is often used in landscaping for its aesthetic appeal, as well as its ability to attract birds and other wildlife. It can be planted as a specimen plant, in mass plantings, or as a hedge. Additionally, the branches can be cut and used in floral arrangements or for decorative purposes.
