Firedance Dogwood is similar to the Isanti Dogwood, but is more campact and has fewer foliar problems. White blooms in the spring turn to white berries, which provide food for birds. The dark green foliage of Firedance Dogwood turns reddish purple in the fall. When the leaves drop in the winter, they reveal bright red stems, which give this plant interest even through the winter months. Its compact form makes it ideal to fill small areas in your landscape.
