Q.Red Twig Dogwood Not Dropping Leaves In Fall

Zone Kokomo, In | ruthaandrews added on October 9, 2020 | Answered

It is early Oct in northern Indiana and I have a red twig dogwood at my church that still has green stems, green leaves and is blooming. All the ones at my house (same variety) are almost bare and have red stems. It is 3 years old, any ideas?

Here is an article that will give you more information on the tree:
