Red twigged dogwood or native alternative?
I need to find a shrub that is small to medium, can tolerate some shade and provides good winter interest. I removed an invasive japanese barberry from this spot and I loved the arching form.
I really love the red twigged dogwood but are they safe for the environment and wildlife? I can't seem to find the full story on them. Can someone give feedback on this or some alternative.
A friend suggested choosing winterberry instead but I don't think i have room for two (for berries). How close does the companion have to be?
