What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Redtwig Dogwood
It's in winter is when redtwig dogwood is exceptionally noticeable, and it's for this seasonal transformation that redtwig dogwood is named. The stems of the shrub become a fiery shade of red before losing its leaves for the season. In Alaska and Newfoundland its winter color is especially vivid — starkly contrasted against a blanket of white snow. The ‘Baileyi’ cultivar, shown here, is similar in color but lacks the spreading appearance of the straight species.
9. Bark. Bushes and trees with beautiful bark, such as redtwig dogwood, river birch or sycamore trees provide a splash of color and texture in an otherwise white on white world. See how to propagate your own redtwig dogwood hedge.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Central Plains Gardener's February Checklist
Prune shrubs and trees. There are two reasons February and March are great pruning months: 1. You can see the branches, since there are no leaves, and 2. The plants have not woken up yet, so the sap is not flowing and damage is much less likely. Birch is one of the earliest trees to start flowing, so get to it early.Redtwig dogwoods are easy to maintain; just snip out one-third of the oldest twigs near ground level to rejuvenate the shrub and ensure more young twigs next winter. The oldest twigs are the thickest and don't have as vibrant a color.Don't prune Spiraea species, which bloom on last year's growth — wait until early summer. In fact, most shrubs that bloom in spring should be trimmed after the bloom.
