Red twig dogwood- winter color

What are those shrubs with the bright red twigs? These are red-twig dogwoods. The newer wood takes on a bright red cast each winter. Older stems turn grayish and need regular winter pruning. In late spring, red twig dogwoods provide white blooms followed by small white fruits in summer. The red twig dogwood provides great year-round interest for the Wyoming landscape!
