PUCKER UP, is a compact upright red twig dogwood cultivar that typically grows to 3-4’ tall and as wide. It is particularly noted for its rugose green leaves which are noticeably puckered as suggested by the trade name and for its showy bright red winter stems. It is primarily distinguished from species plants by its (a) more compact size and (b) glossier, thicker, somewhat smaller, rugose leaves. An upright-spreading, suckering shrub. Reddish stems turn bright red in winter and are particularly showy against a snowy backdrop. Tiny, fragrant, white flowers appear in flat-topped clusters (cymes to 2.5” diameter) in late spring, with sparse, intermittent, additional flowering sometimes continuing into summer. Flowers give way to clusters of whitish (sometimes with a bluish tinge) drupes in summer. Fruit is quite attractive to birds and is generally considered to have as much if not more ornamental interest than the flowers. Excellent massed or as a specimen. Effective in shrub borders where plants can be combined with evergreens or a contrasting color of redtwig dogwoods for interesting winter contrast. Also effective in naturalistic plantings in moist soils where plants can be allowed to spread and form thickets. Plants perform very well in wet locations such as low spots or along streams or ponds where spreading roots can help combat soil erosion.
