I bought a couple trees and as a bonus got a Red twig dogwood free. I have no idea what to do with it or where to plant it. I would like to showcase it as it will be lovely in winter but have no idea where it will do well.

Red Twig Dogwood
Lighting: sun, part
Plant Height: 6-9'
Ground Condition: well drained
Hardiness Zone: 2-8
Some shrubs have beautiful spring flowers; others provide nice summer foliage and most seem to wither away unattractively each winter. These hardy Red Twig Dogwood have beautiful clusters of white flowers in the spring, loads of lush green leaves in the summer and in the winter, when you expect a drab yard, they put on a fiery show of color with their bright red stems contrasting against the snow. The Red Twig Dogwood is an outstanding year round hedge! You get nice 1-2' well rooted nursery grown shrubs. Grow to 6 feet but can be trimmed for a beautiful hedge. Drought resistant.
