Description

Arctic Fire Dogwood

General Information

This great, dwarf selection of dogwood has attractive red twigs that darken in winter time.  Pruning of the old stems will help promote growth of the new stems which provide the richest red coloring.  Small white flowers bloom in the summer. Whitish fruits appear in late summer that attract birds. The Arctic Fire Dogwood is typically grown for its gorgeous red stems that provide great interest to any landscape.  The colorful stems add great interest for your cut flower arrangements. Combine with other dogwoods for contrasting winter interest. Plant in mass for the best effect. This dwarf selection is a great choice for smaller gardens.
