Coral Red Dogwood Description

Coral Red Dogwood 

Coral red dogwood is native to North America except in the deep South and Midwest region. Because of its bright and colorful branches during a season where most color has been removed, it is usually used as an ornamental plant. Its leaves are dark green, but white flowers blossom in the summer.

Coral Red Dogwood shrub - the stark contrast between a gray and white atmosphere with the vibrant red branches that looks similar to a Cardinal in winter

This shrub is a very adaptable shrub that can thrive in many soil types. Butterflies are frequently attracted to this type of shrub in the late spring when clusters of white berries ripen. The contrast between the blue-tinged berries, white petals, and red twig-like branches produces lots of color for any season. This type of shrub grows best with full or partial sun. The entire shade is not recommended, even though it does well in multiple kinds of soil.

The bark prefers organically fertile, drained soil, but as long as it is kept evenly moist, almost any type of soil will work fine. 

Although, In hot summer climates, this type of plant can be prone to more diseases, it generally does not attract pests. It is easy to manage and is deer resistant. Pruning is not required; however, the winter stems are more vibrant with each new growth.

Cutting the stems every few years will help cultivate and preserve color. The plant family of The bark is known as the Cornus. This shrub can grow anywhere from 6 to 9 feet tall with a spread of 8 to 12 feet wide.

 If you wish to prune this shrub, it is advised to remove approximately a third of the stems at ground level. You can make room for new, more colorful stems by cutting out the older and weaker stems. 

 Once the thinning has occurred, trimming can begin. By cutting the stems, the height can be controlled as well as the vibrancy of color. While this does leave a section of bare space in the landscape or garden, it will increase.
