Cornus sericea 'Baileyi'

BAILEYI RED TWIG

DOGWOOD

"This deciduous shrub is known for its distinct red stems and green leaves in the spring which change in the fall to shades of red, orange and purple. In winter its vibrant red stems provides a beautiful contrast against the snow or winter landscapes."

IN OUR GARDEN

Currently, we have eleven red twig dogwoods in our park. They'll start blooming and showing off their flowers in summer.

HOW TO GROW

SOIL CONDITIONS

The Baileyi Red Twig Dogwood prospers when planted in sandy loam soil, requiring effective drainage and ample organic nutrient content. It thrives within a preferred pH range that tends to be slightly acidic to neutral, typically spanning from 5.5 to 7.0 for optimal growth.

SUN EXPOSURE

The Baileyi Red Twig Dogwood, native to understory habitats, flourishes in conditions ranging from partial shade to dappled sunlight. While it does have the ability to endure full sun exposure, it's important to acknowledge that, particularly in warmer climates, offering some shade during the peak heat of the day is recommended to mitigate the risk of heat stress.
