Have three Redtwig dogwoods, this stuff is only on one of them. The stem it is on has limited leaves, the shrub is mature and healthy. Just noticed it yesterday. April 18, 2014. Any idea what it might be?

    Thanks for your response. Someone from Clemson came and collected the ‘batwing’ and analyzed it in their lab. Turns out it was a petroleum product of some sort, perhaps caulk. Not sure how it came to be in my shrub- the next closest house is four acres away in one direction and six acres in the other. We didn’t use any caulk. Mystery solved on one level and a new one has taken its place. Where the caulk substance came from will probably remain a mystery.

    might be fungal infection. look up Dogwood anthracnose and see if it looks like something yours is doing.
