What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Redtwig Dogwood
Botanical name: Cornus sericea (syn. Cornus stolonifera)Common names: Redtwig dogwood, red osier dogwood, American dogwood, red willow, redstem dogwood, redosier dogwood, creek dogwoodUSDA zones: 2-7Water requirement: ModerateSun requirement: Full sun to shadeMature size: 7-9’ tall, spreads to 12’ wideTolerances: Deer, soil — including wet soil and clay soilEnvironmental benefits: Fruit attracts birds and wildlife; flowers attract butterflies
Planting ideas. When it comes to plants, redtwig dogwoods (Cornus sericea), evergreen trees and shrubs, and winter-hardy grasses, such as feather reed grass (Calamagrostis acutiflora), are favorites for the winter landscape. I find that creating winter vignettes is more effective than just placing a single conifer here and there. For example, this stand of redtwig dogwoods looks all the more striking for being placed in front of the ghostly quaking aspens (Populus tremuloides).
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Branches and Twigs for More Than Just Decor
Twigs offer a treasure trove of options for decor, inside and out. Best of all, they’re free, abundant and often strikingly beautiful. Here’s my idea for you: Grab a friend or grandchild or two and a pair of hefty clippers, and head into the woods to see what magic awaits you.More:Bank on Branches for Beautiful FurnitureStick to Branches for Naturally Beautiful Lighting
