Young dogwoods have bright red stems in the fall, winter, and early spring, which turn reddish-brown in the summer. As the shrub matures, the stems turn reddish-brown year-round and later ray. The primary use of this species is for field and farmstead windbreaks and wildlife borders. It is also being used with willows for streambank protection. Other beneficial uses are for fish and wildlife habitat improvement, slope stabilization, borders, and as an ornamental.
