Pucker Up!® is a unique version of our native red-twig dogwood that offers a little twist: heavily textured foliage that has a 'quilted' effect. It makes an eye-catching addition to your landscape and thrives even in wet or partially shaded areas. Though it does flower and display some red coloration on its young stems, foliage is this variety's defining characteristic. This versatile shrub works well as a mass planting, for naturalistic or native plantings, and for a unique specimen. It makes an interesting subject in a container, and can also be used as a cut branch.

This is a very low-maintenance plant that rarely needs pruning. If you wish to prune it, do so in early spring. Year-old and younger stems will show some red color in winter, but its slow-growing habit means that it should not be pruned heavily, as it will take a while for it to recover. 

Tolerates some shade, as well as wet soils.
