Once leaves fall from shrubs in the landscape, things can get a bit bleak. Peppering your landscape with colorful deciduous plants, trees and shrubs can liven things up. Here’s our expert contributor Heidi Branchesi’s tip for keeping some color in your winter garden:

Plant RED TWIG DOGWOOD (Cornus Sericea)!

This beautiful specimen offers a splash of bright red in a winter garden. After their first year of growth, the stem’s color tends to fade. Right now is a great time to remove older branches and let the bright new growth take center stage. Plus, they look great — just check out the picture above!

Find Red Twig Dogwood and more plant varieties at our Glenwood Corner Store Nursery.
