Cardinal is a fast growing, hardy and adaptable variety of redtwig dogwood featuring bright coral pink winter stems. Stems are yellow-green during the growing season. This multi-stemmed, generally rounded plant has clusters of small creamy white flowers in spring followed by bluish white berries that birds love. Its oval leaves turn a burgundy color in fall. Young stems have the best color so its best to occasionally remove older, thicker branches. Excellent massed in the shrub border, especially with an evergreen backdrop, for the winter stem color. Also makes a nice natural hedge if space allows.
