It was 11/29/16 and it was cold and damp. My group found something similar to the Redtwig Dogwood - we had assumed that it would be easy to find. It was so cold we could see our breath because it was winter. Therefore there were no leaves, so it was difficult to identify any plants. We are happy because we found something similar to the Redtwig.
We most likely did not find the Redtwig dogwood, but we may have found the Tatarian dogwood. The leaf stubs were opposite like the Redtwig and tatarian, and the red stems were there.
We most likely found the Tatarian dogwood because it wasn't all the way red, meaning that the red faded to brown at the ends of the stems. Plus, the plant we found was not nearly as vibrant as the Redtwig, the tatarian has a deeper and a browner stem. There were no leaves because it is winter.
