Red twig dogwoods are grown for their winter interest with their attractive red color. They also provide summer interest with variegated leaves. There are several species of this shrub, Cornus. Some have very red bark, others less red. The older stems become less brilliant red and they can be pruned to the ground and young twigs with a brighter hue will replace them.
