Redosier dogwood is known for its deep red stems that add beautiful winter interest to the landscape. Small, fragrant white flowers attract many types of pollinators, and it’s a larval host to the Spring Azure Butterfly (pictured above). As it increases in size it will provide shelter and nesting area to birds, as well as berries for them to eat. To keep up the vibrant red stems, prune about 25% of old wood in early spring to promote new growth. Can be used as a hedge or in a rain garden due to its tolerance of deer and various soil types. You can’t go wrong with redosier dogwood, it’s as pleasing to the eye as it is valuable to the natural world.

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: These boxes can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants supports the United States Postal Service, so your plants will ship via USPS Priority Mail. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
