I don’t remember anything like that in Northern Viriginia when I lived there. Yet in the branches I see it’s potential. Take care, Bill LikeLike Reply Some of my readers believe it’s a dogwood, I guess there must be a variety with red bark, but I have no idea. It’s far enough away from my house, I’m not sure I’ll recognize it once it has leafed up or bloomed. If I figure it out, I’ll post it. VA must have been beautiful. Did you live in the foothills or were you farther from Appalachia? LikeLike Reply The thicket red is lovelier than flowers, I agree! The tubular plants remind me of red licorice!
